  • Elizabeta Ranxburgaj
  • Francisca Teixeira

These two girls have reached the final part of the selection process for the Sutton Trust/ Fulbright USA residential summer school.

This is a fantastic achievement as a field of 1000 candidates nationwide has been reduced to just 170.

The process involved making a video and writing a very lengthy application.

Given that there are 150 places to go to The USA in the summer we are hopeful.

We wish them the best of luck.
