    Please note that neither I nor Wellington have vetted or significantly researched these opportunities.  They have been selected due to being of potential interest to pupils and assumed to be supported by a recognised institution and thus thought to be worthy of note.  Do please carry out your own research and do please let me know if you have any opinions on these opportunities, good or bad, so this service can be improved.
