We are very proud to announce that Summer Villas, our Year 13 student was successful in her application and has been awarded the Engineering Bursary for 2021. She was one of 22 applicants who applied this year.

This is the second year in a row that one of Cardinal Newman Sixth Form student has been successful. This year we had four students apply for the bursary who were Michael Osei-George, Lewis Clark and Liam Byrne as well as Summer.

Summer is hoping to attend Sheffield University to study a degree in Chemical Engineering and was absolutely thrilled to have been chosen. “ I was so shocked, and have no words to describe how happy I am”.

Summer is now looking forward to starting her work experience placement at Leonardo’s in Luton

Summer said that she was inspired by Nobel Prize Winner Dorothy Hodgkin who solved the structure of Penicillin in 1945 as well as the structure of Insulin in 1969. Both Chemicals went on to become mass-produced.

Congratulations Summer, we look forward to hearing all about your experiences in Sheffield and wish you all the best. We also wish to thank the team at Bedfordshire Chamber of Commerce for their continued support of our college students.
