We are delighted to announce that former student; Natasha Rai, has been awarded the OCR Cambridge University Bursary. OCR gives the bursary to students who are from the West Midlands and who have gained a place at Cambridge University. It can be used to support living costs, tuition fees or a combination of the two.

Natasha is studying Archaeology at Trinity Hall, Cambridge. She gained an impressive 2 x A* and 1 x B and a further A* in her EPQ. Natasha formally studied at Our Lady and St Chad Catholic Academy. This is the second successive year that one of our students has gained this award.

Pictured with Natasha at the presentation is curriculum leader Dave McKinnon-Bell. Dave was Natasha's classics teacher and was responsible for recommending her for the award.
