Two lucky Year 12 students have been selected for the prestigious Sutton Trust US Programme.

This is a programme that allows students from state schools the opportunity to find out what studying at an American university would be like.

This is a fully-funded programme, giving the pair the opportunity to visit the USA and world-class universities, such as Yale and Harvard, in the summer holidays.

The first part of the programme will be a residential trip to Nottingham University where they will meet the other students who have been selected on the programme from throughout the UK.

They had to go through a very rigorous process that saw hundreds of students from throughout the country applying.

We are so proud of them for making it through such a challenging and selective process.
