I was Giacomo’s House Master for 4 of the 5 years he was at boarding school. Academically Giacomo was very able. For example he achieved 10 A*s and 2 As in his GCSEs and performed well in his A-levels.
In terms of his character he has a very pleasant personality and very good interpersonal skills. He is mature, considerate and thoughtful and gets on very well with people. He possesses considerable drive and motivation and is honest, conscientious, dependable and reliable. He also possesses initiative, patience and common sense. He is a good communicator, has an eye for detail and would be open and willing to learn and adapt. He is sensitive to people around him and possesses stamina and resilience. He presents very well too.
He had an excellent record at the school and was well liked by his peers and by those who taught him. He can be trusted with responsibility. Outside the classroom, Giacomo was a member of a number of school and House sporting teams (rugby, Harrow football and football just for starters). He comes highly recommended.
