Scholars Programme

Scholars Programme 2023

This year's scholars programme has been a real success and Miss Vale shared her thoughts on the experience;

"In January, 12 Year 9 students began their journey on the Scholars Programme. We started with a visit to Christ's College, Cambridge and shortly afterwards our tutorials began. We were lucky to work with PhD student Nivedita Chatterjee who is publishing work on Feminist Protest in India. The students therefore had a big topic and lots of new ideas and theories to learn in order to write their 2000-word essay with the title "The structure and tactics of digital protest against sexual violence depend on the context and socio-cultural factors of the place it is from. How far do you agree?" They all achieved highly with a variety of 1st, 2:1 and 2:2 marks received for their hard work. 

We ended the Programme with a visit to Keble College, Oxford for their Graduation Ceremony. After the opportunity to hear about life at Oxbridge and a tour of the beautiful College, students were awarded their well deserved certificates.

We are very proud of our students for their work ethic, achievements and maturity for taking on such a big academic challenge just at the very start of their GCSE journey. 

We are already looking forward to recommencing the Programme with next year's Year 9!"
