Ylvali Koch celebrates her results

Joe Follows, Seaford's Director of Sixth Form with Ylvali Koch celebrating top marks at A LevelCongratulations to Ylvali Koch on her amazing A Level results. She achieved 2 A*s and an A. Ylvali was over the moon, explaining that “I am overwhelmed. I didn’t expect it as I thought some exams didn’t go well. I am so so happy”. Ylvali is about to embark upon a marketing internship with BMW in Mexico. It was whilst taking part in Young Enterprise at Seaford that she identified her love of business. “I learnt so much, from communication to time management” she says.

As a boarder in her final year, she described it as the best year of her life. “My results came from boarding. Everyone is working hard so you work hard. It feels like home. The pastoral support from people like Mrs Beard is amazing”.

Ylvali spoke fondly about her time at Seaford, highlighting the fact that she was made to feel valued in lessons and how everyone was so nice and supportive. “It was about achieving your best. It was a pretty great experience”. She wishes to thank all her teachers, in particular Mr Follows – “His lessons weren’t like lessons, they were discussions. He had such interesting points” and Mr Gisby “He was just fantastic”.

Ylvali puts her direction in life down to Seaford, explaining that it taught her to think differently – outside the box.
