From education to employment

‘Brilliant’ graduation ceremony for exceptional students

Students at Clarendon Sixth Form College recently enjoyed a ‘scholars programme’ graduation at the University of Manchester.

The Brilliant Club celebrated the achievements of talented and gifted students from across Greater Manchester, as part of a national scheme to attract the best talent to the UK’s top universities.

Thomas Neumann, Heather Ward, Farhaan Ahmed, Fatima Tariq, Lauryn Goddard and Casey Omeltshenko received certificates recognising their achievements, which included writing a degree level assignment on ‘assistive reproductive technologies’.

Angela Pearson, futures programme coordinator and curriculum leader at Clarendon Sixth Form College, said: “The ‘scholars programme’ is a fantastic project for our students to take part in. It allows them to widen their knowledge of a specific subject area and attain some of the essential skills that will be required in higher education. The assignment they completed will also give them an advantage over other candidates when it comes to applications for university. Well done to them for working so hard and passing with flying colours.”

Participation in the Brilliant Club forms part of Clarendon Sixth Form College’s ‘futures’ programme. This places gifted students onto a bespoke learning framework which motivates success in A-level subjects.
