Scholars' Programme

Twelve students in Year 9 at The Beacon School have enjoyed overwhelming success on the Scholars’ Programme, a national scheme to promote academic learning and the transition to top universities.  They all followed a rigorous course led by Emily Magrath, a PhD student from the University of Aberdeen, and were tasked with completing an undergraduate style dissertation on the impact of the Second World War on Native Americans.  All passed, five of them achieving the top grade of a 1st Class – really impressive results for students of their young age.

The twelve students were: Abby Howarth, Amber Simpson, Brandon Sadler, Ella Vallance, Finlay Dickinson, George le Cras, Grace Pethig, Jack Burns, Nadia Watson, Owen Waite, Sam Ghinn and Shania McNally.  The course was launched at the University of Sussex and the graduation took place in Friday 19th May at the University of Southampton.  These are both highly regarded institutions and certainly helped inspire the students to consider their own pathways to higher education after the Sixth Form.

There were many positive comments from the students.  One said, “The Scholars’ Programme helped me to know how to write an essay.  I can use this skill in many of my subjects.”  Another said, “It has helped me a lot as it has given me insight into university life.”  Finally, quite simply, “I enjoyed learning something new.”

Russell Bennett, Principal, met with the students to award his formal commendations and certificates.  He said, “We are all immensely proud of each and every individual in this group.  They all rose to the challenge of very demanding academic work and represented the school superbly well at two prestigious universities.  We know they have all been inspired to continue working at this level, and in turn, they have motivated us to keep expanding our provision of enriching and ambitious experiences.  Congratulations to them all.”
