Sebastian Pont left Churcher’s Sixth Form in 2009, having joined at Year Five in the Junior School. He when on to study for a Masters Degree in Chemical Engineering at Loughborough University, followed by a PhD in Solar Energy at Imperial College which he finished a year ago.

Recently Sebastian joined the energy division of the management consultancy company Baringa. He soon discovered that the Partner he worked for, Duncan Sinclair, has children at Churcher’s.

Both were keen to support the College's Careers programme. Although coronavirus tried to intervene, the 'Career Bites' presentation was delivered virtually via Microsoft Teams in October. Over 50 students and parents attended and there was a lively and informative Q&A session too. Kirsty Verney, Head of Careers and HE said  "Huge thanks to both Sebastian and Duncan for such a brilliant presentation. We hope to host Sebastian back at the school as soon when we enter more normal times.".
