Priestley students celebrating university boost
8:00am Sunday 29th December 2013 in News
TWO Priestley College students are celebrating after securing top places onto a prestigious programme run by one of the world’s top universities.
Katheryn Thompson and Suzie Mahoney, both aged 16, are two of only 28 to be selected for the Pembroke North Programme run by Oxford University.
The two students had to prove themselves during a string of interviews with Oxford tutors before being offered a place on the year-long programme.
Former Penketh High school pupil Katheryn said: “Being accepted onto the Pembroke North programme is important to me.
“I think I will really enjoy the whole experience, especially the week at Oxford being treated like an undergraduate, which is unique to the programme and very exciting.”
