Russell studied his International Baccalaureate and A-Levels in Math while at Truro and Penwith College. He has gone on to work as Third Engineer Officer Carnival UK for Cunard and P&O Cruises.
“My fondest memory of college was the IB and everything about it, the work was challenging but you always had a sense that it was worth it throughout,” said Russell.
“There was never a dull moment in the classes and we always did other interesting things as well, from abstract discussions in Theory of Knowledge to the Residential to the Extended Essay, and even sending me to Everest Base Camp!”
“The wide range of subjects meant that no two classes had the same people so even though there were over 50 of us doing the IB we all knew each other well, improving the entire experience and making me a more outgoing person. Choosing to complete the IB is one of my greatest decisions!”
