Cronton Students Experience Life at Prestigious Universities
Three students from Cronton Sixth Form will spend a week over the summer at one of the country’s top universities as part of the prestigious Sutton Trust Scheme.
Hannah Smith, Jessica Rigby and Jack McAdam all previously from The Grange School have just completed their first year of A levels at Cronton and were overjoyed when they discovered they had been selected to take part in this highly competitive project.
Each summer the Sutton Trust provides students with the opportunity to focus on a chosen subject and attend lectures and seminars at one of the Russell Group universities as well as visiting places of interest around the university and enjoying a wide range of social activities during their stay.
Jack who will be attending the Imperial College London to study Chemistry said, “I am looking forward to the week at university, I am hoping it will give me a great insight into what university will be like and assure my choice in degree and chosen career.”
Hannah who is going to Bristol University to study Law said, “The week at Bristol will ensure that I have picked the right course to study at university next year, I am hoping to experience campus life which will help me to decide whether to apply to Bristol to complete my degree next year.”
Jessica will be going to The University of Nottingham to study Psychology, she said, “I am pleased to be taking part in the Sutton Trust scheme because it is a great opportunity to explore different universities around the country and a real insight into what it will be like to study psychology at a top university.”
Phil Taylor, Head of Cronton Sixth Form said, “I am really pleased for all three students who were offered a place on the scheme this year. It is a competitive programme with over 10000 applicants each year. Hannah, Jessica and Jack will all have a fantastic experience which will help them when applying for university next year. Previous students who have taken part have described it as an inspirational week and it has been influential in determining the type of course and university that the students attend.”
