ON WEDNESDAY, February 13, a group of Year 10 Milford Haven pupils travelled to Oxford University for a special 'graduation day'.

The youngsters have been taking part in The Scholars Programme, run by the Brilliant Club.

The programme they followed over the last three months has seen them working with Stephen Chapman who has a PHD in BioChemistry.

The group investigated ‘Plant power - powering the world with Biomass’ and produced individual reports that looked at whether this is a viable option for the future energy needs of our planet.

They developed their skills, knowledge and understanding and completed work of an A-Level standard and got an insight into university life.

As part of the day they had a tour of St Anne’s College, had lunch with the other graduates, sat in on seminars, and then went to Oxford Town Hall, which was hosting the Graduation Ceremony.

All pupils did extremely well, receiving 1st and 2:1s.

Well done to Caitlyn Arran, Jenny Algieri, Ben Parr, Mia Adams, Robbie Smart, Ethan Bateman and Ferdy Stevenson for your hard work and determination.

A school spokesman said: "It was a fantastic opportunity for our students to work with a leading expert in the field of biomass energy production and we are very proud of their achievement."
