One lucky Venture student has been offered the 2017/18 Gresham's scholarship; Douglas Robb - Headmaster of Gresham's - has offered Tiah-Paige (Year 11) the chance to study on a full-funded scholarship lasting two years.
The process for this major achievement started with nearly 30 students submitting an application. Elizabeth Haddleton, alongside Simon Gilbert-Barnham (Principal of Ormiston Venture Academy) and Douglas Robb whittled this down to 10 semi-final students who spent the day at Gresham's to learn about what it's like and how their day works.
After interviews and essays, the 10 students were finalised into 4. These were: Jake S, Tiah-Paige D, Beatriz F and Jasmine C. They then went on a residential to the prestigious North Norfolk school to further experience the life of a Greshamian.
One final assessment and interview were conducted to select the lucky student, announced at Ormiston Venture Academy on 16th March 2017.
