Nine Burnley College Sixth Form Centre students selected for ground breaking scheme with the University of Cambridge
Congratulations to nine talented Burnley College Sixth Form Centre A Level Students who have been selected by the University of Cambridge to take part in a ground-breaking national scheme.
The STEM Smart Programmes aims to increase the number of students from areas which have traditionally suffered from economic deprivation applying to top Universities to study Engineering and the Physical Sciences.
The programme lasts 17 months and will see our dedicated students invited to a four-day residential course at the University of Cambridge. They also get tutorials, talks and extra study sessions to ensure they excel in their chosen subjects.
The students who’ve been awarded places on this exclusive programme are:
- Dylan Bleasdale, from Colne, a former pupil at Colne Park High School
- Adam Bowden, from Burnley, a former pupil at Blessed Trinity RC College
- Charlotte Brelsford, from Burnley, a former pupil at Blessed Trinity RC College
- Mason Eardley, from Padiham, a former pupil at Shuttleworth College
- Robert Grymel, from Accrington, a former pupil at Accrington Academy
- Isaac Lightbown, from Padiham, a former pupil at Shuttleworth College
- Harris Maiden, from Burnley, a former pupil at Blessed Trinity RC College
- Joseph Stiling, from Colne, a former pupil at Accrington Academy
- Isobella Shaw-White, from Hebden Bridge, a former pupil at Calder High School
Congratulations to them all. We’ll be catching up with them over the next 17 months to find out more.
Heading to Cambridge for this unique experience, they’ll be following in the footsteps of former Burnley College Sixth Form Centre students who have studied there, including Chloe Bond, a former pupil at Colne Primet High School, and seeing first hand the amazing opportunities open to them
