RMS is an outstanding school whose aim is to produce not only high achievers, but well-balanced, focused and confident individuals, challenged to be the best they can be. All girls are given opportunities to shine, to take risks and develop skills in a nurturing environment.
A truly remarkable example is Victoria Mullin.
Currently studying for a PhD in Genetics at Trinity College Dublin, Victoria already has a First Class Degree in Biology, and a Masters (Distinction) from the University of London. Victoria struggled with dyslexia, but with the School’s support, developed a range of learning strategies she still uses today.
Alongside these exceptional academic credentials, Victoria represents Great Britain in shooting, having been inspired to start by an RMS sports coach. Narrowly missing out on selection for London 2012, she competed at the 2014 Glasgow Commonwealth Games finishing 10th in the Ladies Sport Pistol Event. Victoria is currently ranked No. 1 in Britain for Ladies 10 meter Air Pistol, and regularly competes on the World Cup circuit for GBR.
As speaker at a recent Prize Day, Victoria continues to inspire current RMS pupils, advising them to seize the opportunities on offer, be proud of themselves, and most importantly to “dare to dream and follow that dream with determination, perseverance and enjoyment”.
RMS is proud to count Victoria amongst its alumnae.
