OP Ben Haden (Class of 2018) recently celebrated becoming a Bachelor of Science with Honours in Biological Sciences Class II Division I.

Ben attended Princethorpe between 2011 and 2018 and following completion of his A-levels accepted his offer at the University of Exeter.

Ben deferred his place for 12 months, remaining at Princethorpe for the school year in order to work as a Teaching Assistant. He subsequently took up his place at Exeter in September 2019 and on 14th July 2022 celebrated his graduation with family and friends.

In addition to his studies whilst at Exeter, Ben became an active member of the Uni Surf Society and was later elected to serve as the Travel Secretary for his third uni year. During that period he organised numerous trips to local Devon and Cornwall beaches including Newquay, Croyde and Polzeath and in April 2022 took 54 students on an international surf trip to Portugal.

Ben has now accepted a place at University of Exeter Penryn Campus, Cornwall in order to study for a Master of Science in Marine Vertebrate Ecology and Conservation. He will return to the South West of the UK in September 2022 following the summer to resume his studies (and no doubt surfing). He remains involved in College activity during the summer working with the estates team in preparing the school for the new term.
