Gifted pupils team up with Cronton College to reach their potential
GIFTED teenage pupils planning their careers have won acclaim from a top academic.
Fifty year 10 students from the Grange School in Runcorn who are taking part in a university programme with Cronton Sixth Form attended lessons at the college.
Dr Luke MacMahon, who heads the programme at Cronton, encouraged each student to aim for the most prestigious universities in the country.
He said: “ It was fantastic to work with so many students who are so obviously determined to succeed in their academic careers. “Their enthusiasm and ability was conspicuous.
“It was clear to all who taught them that we were working with many of those who in just a few years would be studying for degrees in some of the country’s most prestigious universities.
Phil Denton, associate deputy head of the Grange said: “The successful relationship between The Grange and Cronton is growing constantly. Our students have a history of success both at school and when they continue onto further education.
"Our many inspirational events, such as this recent visit, are supporting the ambition of our students by offering an exciting early experience of college life."
The next event will be a ‘Question Time’ with Halton MP Derek Twigg.
