A Student from Cronton Sixth Form is celebrating after being offered a place at Cambridge University.
Callum Stephens, who is previously from Penketh High school, is currently completing his A Levels in Further Maths, Physics, Chemistry and Biology at the College before taking up his place at the prestigious university in September.
Callum said, “I am really pleased to have been offered a place at Cambridge University to study Physical Natural Sciences. I have always wanted to work in physics research so this will be a fantastic start to my career.
“The tutors at Cronton Sixth Form have been very supportive and helped me to prepare for my application and interview. They are very encouraging, support your desire to learn and are always around to answer any questions you have. They not only teach you about the subjects you have chosen to study but also give you the skills to learn and self analyse.”
Phil Taylor, Head of Science and Maths at Cronton Sixth Form said, “We are extremely pleased for Callum, he has worked hard during his time with us, completing projects such as the Nuffield Bursary Scheme, research work experience at a chemical plant and has visited Oxford and Cambridge universities as part of the Prestigious University Programme. We wish him the best of luck for the future.”
Cronton Sixth Form has developed links with top universities in the country to help support students and give them the best progression opportunities. During the past year the College has taken students to visit both Oxford and Cambridge University, had guest lectures and developed a Prestigious University Programme which supports students from year nine through to university preparation.
