His fondest memory of Newhaven College was going to City Cite in Year 9. Adrian's advice to current students is: While you're at school, there's a lot of emphasis on thinking about the future. But you're only ever at school once, so never forget to live in the moment and participate in as many opportunities that are on offer as possible.
