    Sunrisers enhance outdoor learning at Ambergate

    It was only six weeks ago that Grantham Sunrise Rotary Club President Anita Asken, had the idea for what then became the biggest project undertaken by the Sunrise Club, and was fittingly timed to mark their 5th anniversary.



    Cameron Ross, a former pupil at Ambergate Sports College, has just graduated with a 2:2 Degree in Theology and is now going on to do a Masters.

    Cameron left Ambergate in 2014, aged 16, and went on to Christ Hospital Sixth Form School in Lincoln to study BTEC Travel and Tourism, and extended GCSE Maths and English. Leaving Lincoln 2 years later, he attended Capernwray Hall Bible School in Lancashire during 2016.
