My name is Jo Isaac, I’m a lower 6th student at Peter Symonds studying Spanish, photography, and psychology. I’m loving Symonds and all my subjects but I have no idea what I want to do afterwards. I’m interested in other cultures and went travelling for five months after year 11 which was fantastic and I really want to do it again. I’m interested in comedy, music (especially The Beatles) and films. I love live comedy, music and theatre. I enjoy writing and am looking forward to writing for this magazine, although I’m not sure how it will work out as I have never written for one before. I don’t have anything else to say… but I hope you can enjoy my writing.


Hello! My name is Victoria and I am 17. I’m absolutely loving life at Peter Symonds, and in my few months here I’ve become known as ‘the floral one’ for wearing a flower in my purple hair, or floral patterns on my clothes! I have a strong interest in fashion, being a keen reader of publications like ‘Elle’, and especially ‘Vogue’ which both inspire my dressmaking at home. I’m a self-confessed fashion freak! Also in my free time I work with horses and love to meet with my best friends for a good gossip. At college my subjects include Biology, Chemistry, Maths and Textiles. I’m looking forward to being involved with the Buzz to express my opinion on the things I care about, and hopefully to entertain the readers by giving them a glimpse of life through my eyes. As Coco Chanel once said, “In order to be irreplaceable one must always be different”  – a damn good way to live life.

Hi, I’m Nathan and I was born in London on 14th September 1992. I am studying English Literature, English Language, Film Studies and Media Studies. I would like to have a career in football journalism because I enjoy writing and I am very interested in football. I support Chelsea and have done so for over 10 years. I have recently joined a six-a-side football team named ‘Sporting Slough’ with a group of friends. It is a great opportunity to play the sport that I love and meet new people. I also enjoy listening to music and my favourite artist now is Eminem. I also make my own music with my older brother and have done so for several years. I now live in Winchester. I am quite tall, have dark blonde hair and brown eyes. I am in my first year at Peter Symonds and am enjoying my time.

 Hi, I’m David and I was born in Winchester on 9th May 1992. I’m taking English Lit, History and Business Studies for my A’levels; I’d like to carry on with history at university. I live in Andover, I’m quite tall and I’ve got long hair for a guy. I support Tottenham Hotspur, and regularly got to White Hart Lane to see them play. Reading is good and I also really enjoy playing guitar, therefore music is a big part of my life. I still don’t really know what I want to do later on in life, but I think journalism could be an option for me. I’d like to think that I come across as a nice person, and that I get on with a lot of people. So I only have one more thing to say and that is: Come on you Spurs!

Hi, my name’s Catharine and I’m an Upper 6th student studying Spanish, Media, Art, and AS French. I hope to have a career in journalism one day, as I love to write, but for now I’m just focusing on getting to university, hopefully to study Spanish (and perhaps another language as well, maybe Russian). As you can probably tell, languages are one of my passions, the other is horse riding – I’ve been riding for 10 years and currently share a cute little Welsh Section D pony called Sian. Other interests of mine include eating chocolate, eating cake, eating chocolate cake…, and the comedian Simon Amstell.  Interesting facts about me?  I’m a vegetarian (have been my whole life!), a ‘3rd generation Symondian’ (that’s three generations of my family attending Peter Symonds), and I love music from the 60s – my favourites including the Beatles (obviously), the Kinks and the Beach Boys.

Well, I’m Dani (long version: Danielle). First year at Symonds – love it so far. Taking English Literature, French, Philosophy and Law. 16 years old, or young – what does that even mean? Brown hair, blonde streaks, hazel eyes. Although not a lot of people notice this…seeing as I’m below the eyeline of most. (5ft zero).  Mosly likely to be remembered for: my ability to burn water. Sorely afflicted with Obsessive Music Syndrome, which means I go more than a little crazy whenever I hear a song I like… I’m a total, utter klutz. I cannot go a SINGLE day without injuring myself or someone else. My writing style is fairly unique…I tend to quote obscure authors, slip into other languages and digress…even from my digressions. So..I think that’s enough about me for now. After all – a touch of mystery is a thousand times more alluring, no?

Hey I’m Alice! I am so excited to be writing for The Buzz; finally my thoughts get a chance to be published! Being a journalist is all I can really see myself doing…I love the variety it offers and to be able to live vicariously through the people I will interview. To have the opportunity to uncover the truth of a matter and share it with the world seems, to me, an amazing skill to be able to conceive.  To help achieve this dream I did some work experience over the summer at two magazines, where I got the opportunity to interview and write articles. I hope to study multimedia journalism at Bournemouth University next year. Currently I am in my second year at Symonds College studying Media, English literature and language and performing arts.
