Neale-Wade Academy trio’s conservation project dream to become a reality thanks to Michael Wilding Bursaries


Students from Neale-Wade Academy in March have been given a financial boost thanks to former students of the academy.

Three students were presented with the Michael Wilding Bursaries by March Grammar School and Neale-Wade Former Students Association during an award evening at the Academy on October 19.

Sixth-formers Dominic Underwood, Katie Ingram and Bethany Jenner will use their bursaries to take part in an overseas conservation and education project.

The MGSNWFS Association awards bursaries annually to Year 12 students to promote excellence and personal development.

The awards were given during the academy’s annual awards evening which saw former student and editor of The Sun newspaper, Dominic Mohan, speak to students about the influences his education has had on his career and advice on how to land a dream job.

Dominic is also a member of the Neale-Wade’s alumni community, now with over 350 members.
