CONGRATULATIONS to Academy Sixth former Jacob Statham who has already fulfilled a lifelong dream after securing an army scholarship.
Jacob (17), has been accepted for a place on an officer training course at Sandhurst Royal Military Academy after completing a rigorous application process.
It means Jacob will now be sponsored by the Army as he completes a degree in Mechanical Engineering at university and on graduating he will automatically attend a 42 week course at Sandhurst.
The Year 13, who has been a cadet at the Arnold detachment of D Squadron for several years, said he was delighted to hear he had been accepted.
“Everything I have ever done was working towards this. I chose all my GCSEs and my A levels based on wanting to join the Army. To know I’ve succeeded in what I have always wanted to do feels amazing.”
On joining Sandhurst after university, Jacob is looking forward to taking part in three semesters – basic soldiering, building leadership and the third and final section, combat readiness.
