Graduation for Scholar Programme
Spirits were high as twenty-three students from St George’s Academy attended a graduation ceremony at the University of Sheffield.
This was the climax of The Scholar’s Programme, organised by the Brilliant Club. The programmes aim was to inspire young people to aspire to the highest levels of achievement. After an earlier tour of Warwick University, a series of seminars with a PhD student and completion of a two thousand word dissertation on the topic of Society and Crime & Punishment, the proud students received their graduation certificates at The Diamond, a cutting edge research facility located in the Heart of The University of Sheffield.
Twelve Year 9 students from the Sleaford Campus and Twelve Year 9 & Year 10 students from the Ruskington Campus were entered onto the academic marathon and all twenty-four successfully completed the course.
