Palmer’s College students win prestigious scholarships

FIVE hardworking students fought off hundreds of applicants across the UK to secure places onto the prestigious University of Reading Scholars programme 2015/16.

Ellen Ballard, Justyna Gromadzinska, Djellona Gojnovci, Melody Hammond and Lailla Chatar recently received letters from the university confirming their places onto the year-long Scholars Programme.

The programme gives a real taste of life as a university undergraduate and provides practical support from leading academics and current undergraduates. Students are also assigned an e-mentor for help and advice.

The students chose which subject area they wished to partake in – Ellen and Justyna chose German, Melody chose Spanish and Djellona and Lailla chose English.

The programme kicks off with a series of introductory sessions and across the year the students will be invited to attend masterclasses as well as undergraduate shadowing opportunities.

Mark Vinall, Principal of Palmer’s College said: "This is a great achievement and a wonderful opportunity for our brilliant students".
