Congratulations to Sophie Gascoyne-Richards (17), who has just heard she has been offered a place to study at Norland College, the prestigious early years training college for professional nannies and childcare professionals.

Sophie was over the moon when she found out she had been offered one of just sixty places available to study in Bath next September. She said,

“I found out about Norland College two years ago and have always been interested in working with children. My sixth form tutor, Mrs Grove, and our Year 3 teacher, Mrs Wilson, have both been so supportive and encouraging during the application process. I applied for a place in October and had an interview with fourteen other applicants at the beginning of November. When I heard I had won a place yesterday, against so much competition, I was absolutely ecstatic!”

Well done Sophie!
