Student aspires to palaeontology

A student with a love of History and Geography hopes to become a palaeontologist when he is older.


Ben Miles, Year 7, has discovered a love of the two subjects after moving to Pool Academy from Roskear Primary School.

He said: “I like History and Geography. Geography is really interesting, I’ve learn about tourism and deforestation which I find really interesting.

“I am learning things at Pool Academy that I have not learnt about before.

“I really want to be a palaeontologist when I am older. History and Geography are my favourite subjects and I know a lot about dinosaurs.”

Ben also enjoys football, art and guitar lessons. In his spare time he enjoys being sociable with friends.

He added: “I have been playing the guitar for a number of years now and I have guitar lessons on a Wednesday. I think I am quite good at it.”
