Cronton Sixth Form Scholarship students 2012

Nine students have started their time at Cronton Sixth Form College in an exceptional way by securing a College scholarship.

 The successful students are awarded the prestigious Scholarships at the College’s three Centres of Excellence – Science and Maths, Performing Arts and Sports.

 Jack Austin, Barnaby Byrom, Rebecca Laws and Kate Snape have been awarded scholarships for maths and science.  Jessica Thickett and April McDaid have been awarded scholarships for performing arts and Ashleigh Seddon, Hollie Bousfield and Tara Jones have been awarded sports scholarships.

 Mary Murphy, Head of Cronton Sixth Form College said, “We are delighted to welcome all of our students to Cronton Sixth Form this year. Already they have settled in well to their studies and are participating in many enrichment activities including Duke of Edinburgh, the Science and Medical Club and the Funk Orchestra and the Debating Society.

“These scholarships are designed to support students and provide financial assistance towards the costs of fulfilling their potential in their chosen field. For example, students may use the money for attending competitions, buying equipment, paying for specialist coaching or tuition and/or studying towards extension awards.”

Students fulfilling certain criteria can apply for the scholarships as part of the College application process.  After scholarship interviews the winning students are awarded financial rewards over their two years of study.  We look forward to meeting next year’s potential students over the next few months.
