Toby Clark - Hunter and Wallis Scholar




For as long as I’ve been at school, sciences and maths have always fascinated me more than other subjects and been the best lesson of the day whenever they popped up on the timetable. I’ve been lucky enough to have a great set of teachers running right from the prep school all the way to where I am now, enjoying my very science centred A Levels of physics, chemistry, maths, and further maths and am grateful to my teachers for helping me achieve the grades to support this.

I have always tried to find out how things work and what things are made of, resulting in a lot of independent and self-motivated study to satisfy this curiosity and why I am aiming to study physics or natural sciences at university level in the hopes of becoming a physicist in the field of high-energy physics. I’m proud of what I have achieved so far and look forward to learning more going forward. I’m honoured to receive both the Hunter and Wallis scholarships for science and maths and hope to continue to enjoy myself while studying the sciences of how everything work and proving myself through my results as I do.

2024 Update:

The Hunter scholarship at Felsted helped me to realise my own passion for the sciences as a whole, beyond just a niche interest in physics. I’m always passionate about gaining a deeper experience about why something works and my experiences taking STEM subjects at Felsted set me up nicely to study everything from physics and maths to chemistry to even materials science at Cambridge!
