A Neale Wade Academy student has been awarded a prestigious scholarship to help with his graphic design studies.

Stephen Cobb is planning to study Graphic Design at Norwich University.

The Academy said that his impeccable conduct and work ethic over his time at Neale-Wade was taken into consideration and the scholarship is testimony to his tremendous attainment during his A Level studies.

Stephen said “The award is an excellent idea to really support students who have the potential to succeed at university but might worry about how they can cope financially.

“The generosity shown by the MEF is amazing and is appreciated so much.”

The scholarship will support him to continue the excellent achievement that he has enjoyed so far and the Academy is extremely grateful to MEF for its contribution.

The March Educational Foundation (MEF) is a local organisation whose key aim is to make a difference to the education of young people of March and the local community.

Representatives from MEF attended the Academy to present the award to Stephen who will produce an annual report to MEF to report back on how he is progressing and how the scholarship is supporting him to achieve his ambition.
