The Scholars Programme Graduate Trip

On Friday 7 February 2020 group of 11 year 9 students went to The University of Southampton to attend their graduation ceremony after completing The Scholars Programme. All students have written a 2000 word dissertation on ‘Negotiating identity in social media.’


The visit included an inspirational lecture about storytelling through music by guest speaker Professor Francesco Izzo. This was followed by a sumptuous feast in the Piazza and a guided tour around the beautiful campus by a student ambassador.


In the afternoon, there was a student life talk and Q&A opportunity. The day ended on a high with the certification ceremony. Henry Taylor, Rania Abdelaal, Isobel Ryder and Harlen Barnett confidently made speeches as spokes scholars.


Paige Smith commented, “The tour allowed us to see the whole campus and understand what University life was like.” Guy Jury said, “I particularly enjoyed the opportunity to purchase a memento of the day in the University shop!”


Congratulations to the whole cohort for your hard work and success.
