A leading all rounder
Aashish Khimasia gained all A*s in his GCSEs and is now in his final year of studying A-levels in Maths, History, Chemistry and Biology. He is also a talented sportsman (rugby and water polo) and post-grade 8 musician, having gained a Distinction in the Associate of the Royal Schools of Music exam last year.
He is part of the Concert Band, Symphony Orchestra, Barbershop Group and Flute Ensemble; a member of the QE Model United Nations debating team; and involved in leading the Medical Society, as well as assisting at Friday Biology Booster sessions. Aashish is also a peer mentor and took part in voluntary work to help the homeless in the Christmas holidays.
"Everything is important together, music, sport and academics. What’s great is that you get a fully rounded experience at QE; it develops you as a person."
It was no surprise when Aashish was appointed as School Captain for 2018.
