This half-term we took 22 students to Kings College, University of London for their Graduation from the Scholars Programme.
During the programme the students from Years 8 and 10 have worked with a University Tutor in weekly tutorials to extend their learning beyond the core curriculum. At the end of the programme completed an extended essay on a philosophical question. Students performed exceptionally well, with several students receiving a 1st in their Final Assignment.
During the visit to Kings College they had a talk from current students about their journey from secondary school to studying Medicine at University. Students also had an opportunity to tour Guy’s Campus, hearing about the history of the Campus and what it is like to study at University.
At the end of the trip the students’ had their graduation ceremony which allowed them to celebrate their graduation with students’ from other schools across the country.
