In 2006 the Trustees of the Paston Foundation created a scholarship scheme to mark Paston’s 400th birthday, bearing the name of our founder, Sir William Paston. Ten years on, the awards are still an important part of the Sixth Form College.
This year, 25 scholarships worth £500 were awarded to new gifted and talented students. The Paston Sixth Form College students study A levels and BTEC courses as a preliminary to going to a top university. This year, 25% of students at Paston went on to top Universities, including three going on to Oxbridge. In the current year, 18 students have sent applications into Oxbridge.
The scholars had a special lunch to receive their scholarships. At the lunch, Richard Dennison, Corporation and Paston College Foundation member, presented the awards. The students use the awards in a range of different ways to support their learning at Paston.
Kevin Grieve, Principal, said “It is good to remind students of the legacy left by Sir William Paston. Again, this year, we have a large number of students gaining the awards”.
