12 students across years 8 and 9 have taken part in a programme to visit 2 highly selective universities and then to produce a piece of very challenging academic writing. These very hardworking and motivated students kicked off the programme by visiting Jesus College, Oxford University, followed by working with a PhD tutor to produce a piece of work by the title ‘The British Prime Minister’. Upon receiving feedback that all 12 had successfully passed this assignment, they were then invited, along with their families, to celebrate at a graduation event at Goldsmith’s, University of London. 9 students with their families were able to attend this graduation day to receive their certificates.
These student had to juggle the challenge of completing this programme along with preparing for and sitting their end of year tests in class. This meant they had to display excellent time management, focus and determination – many of the characteristics that we see in our highest achieving students.
We are very, very proud of them and see this as just the start of a very bright and successful future.
Well done to you all!
Mr P Binks
