Kieran is a rising star

Kieran McHugh, of Maricourt Catholic High School, Maghull has been recognised as an engineering rising star and is one of an elite set of engineering students who has been awarded a diamond jubilee scholarship by the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET).

He is among the first cohort to receive this highly prestigious scholarship and is one of just 540 students from 382 schools in the UK to receive the scholarship worth up to £4,000 per year.

Mrs McGlone, director of sixth form said: “What a fantastic achievement for Kieran after his outstanding A Level results. He had a conscientious approach to all aspects of academic study and was always willing to develop his expertise in subject related challenges.

“As project manager, Kieran’s ability and leadership skills were highly acclaimed when he had direct control of the technological and editorial aspects of the new school prospectus. Kieran is a great ambassador for the school and is a shining example to students of all ages as they strive to achieve their career aspirations.”
Kieran said: “I am absolutely delighted to have won the IET’s diamond jubilee scholarship for my academic achievement whilst at Maricourt.

“It is the culmination of years of hard work and determination; not just for me, but also for my teachers who stopped at nothing to ensure that I was always well prepared for my examinations, applications, and interviews.”
