Emily Butler and Hannah Marsden. Both achieved A* in Mathematics
and A in Further Mathematics at A level.
Emily, who is now reading Mathematics at Sheffield University,
Hannah, who is now reading Natural Sciences at Cambridge,
|I would like to take a moment to say how honoured
I am to have been worthy of receiving the Glauert Award at Scarborough
sixth form college and am so glad all of my hard work finally paid off!
Mathematics has been a great passion of mine from a very young age and
college inspired me to have the ethic to work hard and be able to take
my passion to the next level. Through hard work and determination I reached
my goal and am now currently studying an Integrated Masters in Mathematics
at the University of Sheffield. I am greatly enjoying my time at university
and am excited to see where this may lead me.
Alongside studying mathematics, I am partaking in
other activities at university. I have began rowing this year which is
great fun even as a beginner. It has allowed me to integrate well in to
the university environment and the socials are great fun. I am also taking
the great opportunity to go travelling this summer, to Thailand. I will
be attending Camp Thailand for a month in summer where I will have the
opportunity to experience Thai Culture and broaden
my horizons. Whilst I am there I will be teaching in the local schools,
visiting an orphanage and taking care of the elephants in a nearby elephant
sanctuary. Not only that, in my spare time I will be able to visit the
night markets and have the chance to admire the gorgeous scenery and stunning
beaches. To end my trip I am partaking in an Island hopping tour to experience
the different cultures and embrace my time in Thailand.
Thank you again for your generosity.
|I am writing to confirm I received the Glauert award
and to thank you for the prize.
Along with maths and further maths I studied physics
at A level and am now at Cambridge university doing a degree in Natural
Sciences with plans to specialise in physics. Currently I have no real
career plans, I would perhaps like to work in the science industry but
my course covers such a wide range (I do physics, maths, earth sciences
and materials science) that I still have plenty of options.
There are presently 95 members of the Association.
Since the last newsletter we have received news of the
death of one former pupil:

other pupils or staff please let our secretary Anne Davidson know.

the £10 prize, means a donation of £25 to be made to Martin
