High School Student wins Deloitte Scholarship
Stamford High School student, Lucy Hughes Y13, has been accepted onto the prestigious Deloitte scholars’ scheme. The scheme provides a unique opportunity for successful students to gain invaluable work experience during their Gap year, as well as providing them with a bursary to fund travel at the end of the 8 month placement.
The application process is very competitive, as places on the scheme are highly sought after, and Lucy had to go through a five stage selection process before hearing that she had been successful. Following her Gap year, Lucy will also benefit from further work experience with the company and bursary support while she studies for her degree.
Chris Hawkins, Head of Sixth Form at Stamford High School said, “Lucy has done exceptionally well and everyone at Stamford High School is really proud of what she has achieved. Her hard work and determination throughout the application process has certainly paid off and we wish her the best of luck for the future
