A cohort of Year 10 students from Saint Paul’s Catholic High School in Wythenshawe, Greater Manchester were given an incredible opportunity to study a module at degree level, on the Scholar’s Programme through The Brilliant Club.
They attended their virtual graduation ceremony hosted by the University of Manchester to receive their awards virtually accompanied by their families. Mrs Erin Rudd, Careers Lead at Saint Paul’s, said, “It has been an amazing process with our students tenaciously working hard and striving for excellence; of which they were accordingly rewarded. A special thanks to their families who have supported their children with this momentous achievement”.
“This really is a remarkable achievement, we are extremely proud of those students who took part in the project especially during the recent difficult and unusual times. The students enjoyed the work and showed so much enthusiasm for each topic.”
“The Graduation Ceremony was an exciting and prestigious event marking their remarkable achievements,” commented Mr Alex Hren, Head Teacher. “The course was designed to give the students a real experience of university level work. Their positive attitude was extremely useful in helping them to achieve their best and truly benefit from the experience.”
