Bryne Stothard 1989-1999

Bryne attended Hymers on a bursary place and believes it is a key mechanism of the school

A Hymers bursary in the 1990s helped me stay at the institution during a difficult time in my family's life - something 2020 has taught us can happen to anyone. This continuity helped me succeed in my studies and go on to a career in Education myself. If my time teaching in Hull, Beijing, Shanghai, Bangkok and Frankfurt has taught me anything - it is that talent is widely distributed but opportunity is not. Hymers was founded on the mission of "...the training of intelligence in whatever social rank of life it may be found among the vast and varied population of the town and port of Hull". Bursaries are a key mechanism for Hymers College to realise this mission.
