The 'Brilliant Club'
On Friday 24th January twelve Y10 students went to the launch of the 'Brilliant Club' at Leeds University. They experienced the intellectual and physical environment of a selective university. They prepared for their work on the scholars programme by meeting their PhD lecturer and had their first real lecture.
This was followed by the same Y10 students embarking on their second tutorial on Thursday 30th January here at the Academy. They were tutored by a University Lecturer who gave them the experience of University style learning with the aim of stretching and challenging them to raise aspirations to attend a first class University. Their topic was From Bare Bones: Reconstructing Ancient Diets using Zooarchaeological Techniques!
The programme will end with them completing a final assignment and then graduating at the University.
The 'Brilliant Club' is amazing and so are our students, we wish them well in their studies
Sheffield University Trip
On Friday 18th October 48 Y11 students visited Sheffield University to look at the opportunities Higher Education has to offer. Students had a fantastic day experiencing the day in the life of a student.
Feedback was 100% positive with all saying this had made them more optimistic about their future and that they are now more inspired to achieve their goals with a clearer focus on what is required.
My Perfect University
'Inspirational Learning' came into the Academy to deliver 'My Perfect University' to our Year 8 students. This was to get them thinking about higher education and what it has to offer. The evaluation of the day can be seen below with some photos of our students on the day.
