One of our best and brightest 6th form students has been offered a much-sought Nuffield Research Placement this summer. Ellie Wilson, who studies at both Chalk Hills and Stockwood Part academies as part of our shared 6th Form, was recommended for the programme by her Psychology teacher at Stockwood, Ms Rachel Thorman.
Head of Social Sciences Ms Thorman notes, “Ellie is such a hard-working and enthusiastic student; I’m delighted that she has been awarded the opportunity to take part in this academically challenging research placement.”
The programme gives talented and hard-working young people the chance to work alongside professional scientists, engineers, technicians and mathematicians for 4 to 6 weeks over the summer holidays, completing a real research project!
“I’m really looking forward to gaining more experience in Psychology,” says Ellie.
Ms Thorman looks forward to Ellie sharing her research findings with other Psychology students in all years, offering inspiration for others to pursue similar challenging academic opportunities.
