Physics: Bede's Students Earn Prestigious Summer Placements

Upper Sixth Physics 14

Physics students at Bede's realise the importance of learning outside of the classroom and throwing themselves into challenging and exciting new environments.

This is why many of our students spend part of their summer holidays in University departments and companies around the world.

The student's offers have started coming in and I would like to take the time to congratulate their hard work.

Abigail Burton has been awarded a place to study physics at the University of Leicester as part of the Headstart course. This is an over-subscribed and competitive placement and it is a credit to Abigail that she has been accepted.

Ed Cudlipp has bucked the trend and also been awarded a place to study Broad-Based Engineering at a top Russell group university as part of the Headstart course. It is very unusual for more than one student per school to be offered a place and this shows the quality of the students within the department.

Bryony Dennis has also organised to attend a competitive Architecture course at UAL. This is a fantastic opportunity for Bryony to explore her future career ambitions and learn about the world of Architecture.

Meg Bradley has her heart set on becoming a doctor and has organised to spend three weeks in a hospital in Thailand, shadowing doctors and learning about what the role involves. Meg is an incredibly talented student and she will be an asset to the hospital whilst she is there. 

I am confident that more students will find other interesting and exciting ways to spend their summer holidays and I feel privileged to work with such driven and ambitious students.
