UPDATE: 10/09/20- I am delighted to say that Loughborough University have accepted Hannah Moat's application to study Psychology and Criminology starting this month. It was an honour to make representations on her behalf and I look forward to seeing how her career unfolds; Scunthorpe could have a future Olympian in its ranks!
I have today asked the Education Secretary to review the university application of Scunthorpe resident Hannah Moat in Parliament. Hannah is an elite athlete that was due to study at Loughborough University, but her place was rejected due to a clerical error that her school made when inputting her centre-assessed grade.
It is really important that people in Scunthorpe have the opportunity to make our town proud, and I will do all I can to make sure that our students achieve the university places they deserve. I will continue to push the Education Secretary on behalf of several constituents.
