Local MP lan Austin visited students this week to hear about their progress as part of The Scholars Programme – a prestigious national scheme which gives school pupils on opportunity to experience university-style learning.
As part of the programme, the pupils will visit two highly-selective universities, where they receive information, advice and guidance about university life and making a successful university application.
lan Austin said:
“It was great to visit Bishop Milner Catholic College today, and meet pupils taking part in The Scholars Programme. I was very impressed at how they engaged with such a complex and challenging academic topic. I wish the pupils the very best for the future.”
Mr Coombes, More Able Coordinator said:
“I was delighted to meet with lan and show him the work pupils are doing in The Scholars Programme. I’m proud of the achievements of our pupils who are participating and am excited to see how their participation inspires their study and university choices.”
