Harpenden fellowship winner set to go global
A BOARDER at a Harpenden school has become the second sixth former in its history to win a coveted global fellowship.
Siobhan Randall, 18, who boards at St George’s School in Sun Lane, is off to Brazil when her A-levels are finished after beating off over a thousand applicants to become one of just 30 students to win a Prime Minister’s Global Fellowship Award.
Having written an essay and attended a series of selection activities and interviews, Siobhan will spend six weeks this summer in Brazil exploring the social, economic and environmental issues posed by rapid global change.
After two weeks in Rio for a language and cultural immersion course, Siobhan will head to Sao Paolo where she will work with a multi-national business to understand the role of British companies in the global market place.

Siobhan, who has a place to study politics at university, said: “It is a great honour to get this award and a wonderful chance to develop my interest in global issues which I study at school and through my work for various charities.”

Headmaster Norman Hoare added: “To have one student achieve this prestigious award was quite something three years ago (Daniel Nunn from Flamstead, now at Bristol reading Biology) but to now have Siobhan destined for the same country on the same Fellowship is a real feather in our cap and a great testimony to Siobhan.”
