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.
Some Year 7s have gained both practical skills and confidence on the road this week with intensive cycle training through the brilliant Bikeability! https://t.co/fosZzulDHy #WeAreEggars 5:35 PM - 13 May 2021
