A chance to contribute to university research project


A FORMER Bridgewater High School pupil is looking for people willing to take part in a research project at Cambridge University.
Harry Gibbins is now a second-year history undergraduate at Cambridge and is looking for people prepared to be interviewed for a final year undergraduate history dissertation.
He believes the opportunity may be of interest to people who would like to contribute to a professional historical research project being conducted by the university with which he is collaborating.
Harry said: “The dissertation is focused on the experience of secondary school amalgamation in North West England, 1965-90, and I’d be really interested in hearing from staff and pupils who worked and studied at secondary schools in the region at the point when two or more schools merged together.
“The dissertation is being supervised by Dr Chris Jeppesen, a research associate and historian of modern Britain currently working on the Secondary Education and Social Change in the United Kingdom since 1945 (SESC) research project at the University of Cambridge.
“Research material from the dissertation will be passed on to SESC after the dissertation has been completed if participants consent for this to be done.”
People who are interested in being interviewed should visit sesc.hist.cam.ac.uk for more information about SESC, and people interested in being interviewed for the project or who have any questions should email Harry at hg416@cam.ac.uk
After leaving Bridgewater High, Harry moved on to Appleton College before being accepted for Cambridge.
He was, briefly, a Green Party local election candidate at Stockton Heath in 2016 and was a newsreader for Radio Warrington between 2013 and last year.
