The Scholar's program, run by the social mobility organization the Brilliant Club, aims to help students aspire to attend high achieving universities.
Ordinarily the groups would attend a launch event at the University of Manchester where they would get a taste of student life and sample some seminars and tutoring sessions there. Unfortunately, due to the ongoing restrictions we were unable to offer that aspect but we hope the groups still gained a lot from the experience.
The sessions ran for 5 weeks and our students studied one of the 3 topics below:
KS3 STEM - Disease Detectives
KS3 Art & Humanities - The history and the impact of the French Revolution
KS5 - The Writer at Work: Expatriate Voices in The Paris Review Interviews
The PhD tutors, Lucy, Emily and Rathi said they the groups worked really hard and had some awesome ideas in the tutorials.
Lucy was really impressed with how the students analysed texts and Rathi loved the presentations students gave about how to control a virus in front of their tutorial group. Rathi said they were very informative!
Well done to everyone who took part!
