Sir Thomas Wharton Academy have recently become involved with a new project (HeppSY) that is linked with Sheffield Hallam University and our local National Collaborative Outreach Partnership (NCOP).
NCOP is a national programme funded by the Office for Students (OfS). The Higher education outreach activities that they provide are aimed at showing students the higher education opportunities available at college and university, and how completing a higher education course can benefit their job prospects. The activities may also improve students' attainment. The activities are being run by HeppSY, Hepp, Sheffield Hallam University, The University of Sheffield and other approved partners. The National Collaborative Outreach Programme's (NCOP) aim is to increase the number of young people progressing to university and higher education by 2020. Your child may have the opportunity to take part in activities such as university campus visits, summer schools, finance workshops and other higher education opportunities.
