Currently studying Fine Art Printmaking, Georgi is exploring pursuing a career in Art or Speech and Language Therapy.

What did you do after TGS?  

I decided to pursue a higher education in art, inspired by the Art teachers who I admired who had done so, as well as an impassioned alumna who visited to talk about her experience on a BA Fine Art Painting course. This began with an art and design foundation course at City and Guilds of London Art School, where I achieved a distinction, followed by a BA in Fine Art Printmaking at the University of Brighton.   

What are your career plans?  

Since my time at TGS, where the Art teachers avidly encouraged me to express the personal connection between Art and well-being that I felt important, I have considered pursuing a career in Art Therapy or Speech and Language Therapy. Both options require a specific Master’s Degree and a year’s relevant work experience; I hope to gain mine as a Teaching Assistant in an SEN school.   

What do you feel is special about TGS?   

TGS empowers students to honour their true ambitions, through excellent quality teaching that goes above and beyond establishing thorough understanding of content to feeling as though each teacher knows and caters to your needs well, both educational and pastoral. The outstanding memory for me will always be the dedication of the Art teachers to their subject and the way in which they empowered me to excel through genuine investment in my ambition as an artist. The well-being support was also invaluable and unforgettable.   

Have you remained in touch with School since you left?   

I have remained in contact with the Art teachers, who continue to offer their support to me in whatever ways they can. I enjoy having these connections to practising artists, whose opinions and careers I respect greatly. I also had the pleasure of returning to TGS and engaging with students in their classes, as well as observing an Art session held by current Year 12 students for students from the Nexus School, with whom TGS run their current outreach programme. On this day, I also reconnected with the teacher who organised the equivalent when I was at school, as well as the well-being support teacher.   

Which subjects did you take for your IB Diploma?  

I took higher Art, Philosophy and Spanish (which I continue to speak at an advanced level), as well as standard English, Environmental Systems and Societies (ESS) and Maths Studies.
