Hipperholme Grammar School has welcomed its new Year Seven pupils into the Senior School.
Headmaster Jack Williams congratulated the new Year Seven “scholars”, a small group of pupils who have been awarded a scholarship to study at the school for the next five years.
Each pupil has earned their scholarship through hard work, effort and achievement - academically, or for musical talent or sporting excellence.
Scholarships were awarded to George Gillgrass – Academic Scholarship; Olivia Turner – Academic Scholarship; Jonah Carroll – Music Scholarship; and Ella Clark – Sports Scholarship.
The recently introduced 100 per cent Fenton Scholarship was awarded to George Gillgrass for his outstanding performance in the school’s entrance examination last October.
“I would like to congratulate each of our new scholars,” said Mr Williams. “We will once again offer the Fenton Scholarship for entry into Year Seven in September 2015.
“Our school is committed to recognising the achievements and talents of children from all backgrounds.”
