Chloe Catling is a second year A Level Psychology, Biology and Photography student at RuTC who suffers from Cystic Fibrosis. Despite spending a lot of the year in hospital, Chloe managed to vastly improve her grades, going from lower grades in her mock exams to achieving A’s in her module exams.
Alongside her studies, Chloe has actively made the most of her college experience by getting involved in extracurricular activity involving trips to Haymarket Media Group and Tate Britain, whilst participating in the Twickenham Riverside Landscape competition and more.
Chloe attended the Best Learner event with RuTC’s Vice Principal, John O’Shea, one of her teachers, Fiona Simpson and her mother, Emily Spiller and her grandfather, Graham Spiller. Chloe commented, “the ceremony was an incredible experience and the organisers did a fantastic job of making myself and other award winners feel very special for our achievements. I was happy to see so many people recognised for their efforts.”
John O’Shea, Vice Principal at RuTC commented, “Chloe never fails to work to the best of her ability. Although Chloe faced the challenge of juggling hospital appointments with coursework deadlines and exams, she has not held back and has strived to grab opportunity with both hands. Chloe is an inspiring and positive person who always has time for other people and never goes a day without a smile on her face.”
Chloe is excited for the future and upon leaving RuTC will begin working at Alina Homecare, where she has secured a job as a Care Assistant and will receive training for her future career in the industry.
