A student who has consistently shown exceptional academic ability and a strong work ethic has been rewarded with the Greenham Scholar Award.

Year 13 pupil Charlie Wingrove has landed a grant of around £10,000 to support him though his university studies at Oxford/Reading where he hopes to read Biomedical Sciences.

The award is an initiative from The Greenham Trust @Greenham_Trust, which provides financial support to the local community in West Berkshire and North Hampshire.

Charlie’s application was voted for by all the participating local secondary school heads, the head Newbury College and the Greenham Trust Distribution Committee.

To apply for the award, the head of each participating local secondary school, Newbury College and West Berks Council each nominated one candidate. The heads and Greenham Trust Distribution Committee went through every application and voted for the candidates they believed to be most worthy of receiving the award.

And Charlie’s win is so well-deserved! Charlie is one of our highest achieving students, having gained six Grade 9 passes at GCSE, three Grade 8 passes and one Grade 7.  He joined us at the end of Year 10 and had to change curriculum for some of his subjects, but despite this, he achieved grades that wholly encapsulate his ability and work ethic.

He is a fantastic representative of the school, a valued member of the Sixth Form Crew and was also the student selected to take part in the recent TVCC Windsor Debates.

Charlie is currently studying for A Levels in chemistry, biology and drama, and we wish him well for the future.
