FENLAND students donned traditional caps and gowns to take part in a graduation ceremony at Cambridge University.
Thirty eight Thomas Clarkson Academy students took part in first Children’s University graduation at St John’s College. They received bronze certificates, which they achieved by completing 30 hours of extra-curricular learning, all of which was accredited by the Children’s University.
Students took part in activities including a hair and beauty academy, karate lessons and volunteering at the Wisbech museum to clock up the hours.
Several students achieved a number of hours towards their certificate with the time they spent rehearsing for and performing in the recent Thomas Clarkson Academy musical Into The Woods JR.
Ger Graus, chief executive of the Children’s University, said: “This is about firsts – it was the first Children’s University graduation at the University of Cambridge and I thought the students were brilliant.”
