A Year 12 pupil has secured a Nuffield Research Placement. These prestigious and highly sought after placements offer Year 12 students work experience in research laboratories and projects. The work produced by attendees is part of the research project and is often published in scientific journals.
Ira, who is a member of the Sixth Form Leadership Team, has secured one of these placements – the first pupil in BVS history to do so. She will be spending four weeks in the summer working at a university research laboratory and participating in hands-on research and experiments.
‘I am thrilled to have got a Nuffield Research Placement. There were limited spaces on the scheme and I know how competitive it is, so I am really pleased that I was successful. I plan to study science in university and so this will be excellent experience.’
