“I am exceptionally proud of the kindness, positivity and good humour our students have shown throughout these months of uncertainty.

At Putney we put a real emphasis on preparing students for the future – providing them with the skills and attributes to flourish on whichever path they choose. We want our students to make a difference and this year’s cohort will clearly play their part with a high proportion going on to study not only Medicine but other disciplines including Biological Sciences, Marine Biology, Sustainable Development, Economics, Politics and Languages.”
