The twelve teenagers all took part in a course led by PhD student Emily Magrath, from the University of Aberdeen, and had to complete an undergraduate-style dissertation on the impact of the Second World War on Native Americans.
All twelve passed the course organised by the University of Sussex and five of them achieved a top grade equivalent to a 1st Class result. They ‘graduated’ from the University of Southampton on May 19.
“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,” said Russell Bennett, Principal.
The students involved 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.
