Swanlea Sixth Form Governors Bursary Winner Complete First Year of University!

Last year 3 year 13 students won the Swanlea Sixth Form Governors Bursary and this year, they have all completed their first year of university!

Last year’s students have benefited greatly from the bursary. Shahara Akter Hussain is now studying Dentistry at Kings College, London, Thakmin Nessa is studying Religion, Philosophy and Ethics and King’s College, London and Zakariya Abdullahi is studying Law with Economics and SOAS.

The Swanlea Sixth Form Governors Bursary was introduced in 2017 and is awarded annually to 3 successful year 13 students who are going to university, have met their target grades and have achieved 94% and over in attendance and punctuality.

The bursaries are worth £7500 for a three-year university course (£2500 per year).

At Swanlea we understand that the high cost of a university degree can be a financial burden on our students and their families and so the governors created the Swanlea Sixth Form Governors Bursary.

Applications are coming in across year 13 for this year’s Bursary. We wish all our students the best of luck when applying.

Health and Education Ministers Talk Mental Health at Swanlea

Health Secretary Jeremy Hunt and Education Secretary Justine Greening visited Swanlea School last week.

Swanlea was involved in the CAMHS and Schools Link Training pilot in 2015/16 which saw local models of joint working between schools and mental health services vastly improve. The pilot meant that services worked more smoothly together, and children were able to get the right help quicker through the new, trained school leads, reducing pressure on local CAMHS services and improving the mental health support of all pupils.

The Health Secretary and Education Secretary talked to our students about the services available to them and how Swanlea’s help and support has benefited them and their mental health.

We also showed the minsters the work our students have been doing to raise awareness around mental health. Students were thrilled to present the ‘I Am Me’ campaign, a video and set of images promoting awareness of the issue for young people and the community. Needless to say Education Minister, Justine Greening, was more than impressed and encouraged our students to carry on with raising awareness on such an important topic.
