Samantha Ling - Alumni 2008
Featuring Samantha Ling, Class of 2008
We had the opportunity to catch up with Samantha Ling to see how life after Lingfield College is progressing.
Samantha is a previous pupil at Lingfield College (then Lingfield Notre Dame) and left in 2008. She studied Philosophy, Business Studies and English Literature at A level, and achieved excellent grades (AAB). She gained a place at the University of Bournemouth where she studied Psychology. Samantha decided upon Human Resources as her career path and started at Vent-Axia (a ventilation company based in Gatwick) and was there for three years. Her first position in the company was HR Administrator, and she was promoted to HR Advisor and then Senior HR Advisor. Samantha consequently changed roles to work at Pinewood Studios Group, based at Iver Heath, Buckinghamshire, where she still works as Group HR Advisor. Samantha is also studying for her Masters in HR Management at Buckinghamshire University and is on track to achieve first class degree. Her dissertation is on the gender pay gap, a highly topical issue!
Samantha has very fond memories of her time here at Lingfield College. The School was supportive of her, gave her a sense of belonging and it had a good sense of community. In addition she had a great group of friends which she is still in contact with! While she studied at Lingfield College, Samantha achieved the Sixth Form Award for Excellent Progress in 2008.
