The Earl of Yarborough Scholarship for Chemistry

Date Posted: 02/12/2014 | Posted In: Latest news

This summer, Victoria Hugill finished her studies at QE attaining excellent results in A Level Biology, Chemistry and Law. In September she went to the University of Lincoln to read a degree in Forensic Chemistry.

Once at Lincoln, Victoria’s A Level results were so high that she was asked to transfer from the BSc course to the brand new 4 year Masters in Forensic Chemistry. In addition, due to her academic achievement, she was awarded the Earl of Yarborough Scholarship worth £10,000.

Chemistry teacher, Julia Magnall, taught Victoria at QE and was invited to join Victoria and her mother for the scholarship presentation at Lincoln.

Julia says:

‘I was privileged and proud to be at the presentation ceremony as Victoria is an excellent student who thoroughly deserves the scholarship. The University was very complimentary about Victoria and how well prepared she is for higher education and would now like to make stronger links with QE – they wish to recruit more students of her calibre!’

Victoria’s home is in Ingleby Barwick and, before doing A Levels at QE, she was a pupil at All Saints Church of England School.
