Two ex-Politics and History students from Varndean College have continued to excel in their academic careers. Dan Gill, who is reading History at Gonville & Caius College, Cambridge, has won an award for coming top of the class in his second year of study.
Politics and History teacher, Jill Arnold said, ‘We are delighted to hear about Dan’s outstanding achievement. He was always an exceptional student; not only did he get A* in all 4 A levels he took (History, Politics, English Literature and Economics), he achieved a staggering 100% in all of his second year modules at Varndean College.’
Liam Stanley, who also studied History and Politics, has recently been appointed as a lecturer in Politics at Sheffield University, having achieved a first class degree, followed by an MA and PhD in Politics from Birmingham University.
Roy Cullen, who taught Liam Politics at Varndean College, said, ‘Liam really made the most of his time studying Politics and was an active member of the Politics Society. It’s great that Liam is now going on to inspire the next generation of Politics students.’
Before going to Varndean College, both Dan and Liam went to Dorothy Stringer School.
