Cronton Student is 1 of 30 in the Country to be Accepted on Cambridge Residential
Cronton Sixth Form student Kerry Brown, previously from Helsby High School, is celebrating after being accepted on the prestigious Magdalene Sciences Residential 2014 at Cambridge University.
Kerry, who studies A-level biology, chemistry, physics and maths at Cronton, impressed with her application and with only thirty places available on each residential, was selected from one hundred and fifty applicants.
The residential takes place at the beginning of April and allows students to experience life at Magdalene College over three days living and studying at the campus. Experiences on the residential include lectures and seminars led by university academics, interview and discussion workshops and the opportunity to spend time with Cambridge University lecturers and undergraduate students.
Course tutor Pam Dugdale said “I was delighted when I heard that Kerry had been accepted onto this residential course. She is an outstanding science student who works hard and has fully immersed herself in both the academic and enrichment activities here at the Mond Centre of Excellence for Science and Maths. I hope that she learns a lot and has a great time. She’ll be an excellent ambassador and we are all very proud of her.”
Kerry said “I found out about the residential through a presentation at college by the Cambridge school admissions officer. I decided to apply as I thought it would be a great opportunity and would give me a valuable insight into what life as a Cambridge student is like. I’m very pleased that I have been accepted onto the residential, especially since there were only thirty places available. Magdalene looks beautiful, especially the river frontage, I can’t wait to visit.”
