Summer School Scholarship at Harvard University, Massachusetts

Ysgol Brynhyfryd sixth form students – Elin Elias, Erin Swyn Williams, Cerys Edwards and Ifan
Gwyn have been selected to attend the Pre-college Summer School Scholarship at Harvard
University, Massachusetts in the United States where they will be introduced to ‘university’ life
while attending a variety of classes.
The two-week scholarship was secured by the students through the Seren Network, the Welsh
Government university scheme that provides Wales’ most academically able sixth formers with
opportunities at the best universities in the UK and abroad.
Only a small amount of students in Wales are admitted to the placement in any one year, worth
$4,700 per student, marking a major success for these four students of Ysgol Brynhyfryd.
The Brynhyfryd students will join other Wales students to experience classes, off-campus
excursions and extra-curricular activities – a truly unique experience, one that they will never
forget.
Manon Wilkinson, Head of Sixth Form at Ysgol Brynhyfryd added, “Our students are so hard
working and are awarded such opportunities because of their dedication and perseverance in
their studies. These students are the future and here at Ysgol Brynhyfryd is where we nurture
and support them to achieve alongside the support and encouragement of the families. We are
just so proud of them all and look forward to hearing about this wonderful experience”.
