Bursary pupil features in the London Standard

Nadia Hassan (LI U6), has featured in the London Standard following the news that she has received an offer from Trinity College, Oxford, where she hopes to study French.

While Marlborough College has helped her get to Oxford, she credits her community in Leyton for instilling in her a strong work ethic.

Nadia told the Evening Standard: “I think I’m very lucky to grow up in this community, because it has never stopped me from trying to achieve. In fact, it has probably driven me further because there is support in the community,” Nadia added.

“People are very welcoming. I remember when I got my scholarship I had so many people — people I didn’t even know — congratulate me, which I thought was really sweet.”
