Year 9s start their Scholars Programme
The Scholar's Programme gives students from across the UK the opportunity to work with a PhD tutor to experience university style learning. It helps students develop the skills, knowledge and confidence to secure a place at a highly selective university. Eggar's is one of 800 schools which offers this opportunity.
It was the start of the Scholars Programme for 12 of our Year 9 students who went to Sussex University yesterday with Mrs Lynch. They met with their PhD tutor, experienced their first tutorial and were given a really interesting tour around campus, exploring places like the library where they couldn't believe how many books there were!
They did the school proud with impeccable behaviour throughout.
Its a really exciting Programme and we look forward to hearing about the next stage.
