Year 10 Scholars Programme – Brilliant Club

A small group of our year 10’s have completed The Brilliant Club Scholars Programme.  The programme involved 6 tutorials from a PhD student form the University of Sheffield.  All students involved had to submit a 2000 word assignment based on their subject which was ‘From curing cancer to designer babies: bioethics of gene editing’ – wow!
On Thursday 7th February Mrs Baldwin and Miss Sellers had the pleasure in taking the students to their graduation evening.  Kristian Horvath, who was also involved unfortunately couldn’t attend the evening.

UNIfied Trip To Sheffield

On Monday the 4th of February 24 year 10’s had the chance to attend an educational trip in Sheffield. The trip named UNIfied was a collaborative day between The University of Sheffield and Sheffield Hallam University, run through HeppSY+.  During the day students had the opportunity to build confidence, negotiation and communication skills along with information about Higher Education within a University institute. The students were really enthused throughout the whole day and showed great confidence in their own ability to progress onto not only further education, but higher education.

Apprenticeships: Be Inspired 2018 Event

On Wednesday 7th March, some of our year 11 students had the opportunity to attend the ‘Apprenticeships: Be inspired’ 2018 event at the Cutlers Hall in Sheffield. This was the perfect opportunity for some of our students to meet employers, understand more about vacancies and industry sector, make connections, distribute their tailored CVs and learn how to apply for the roles.

The feedback from employers was that the preparedness and interaction from the students was brilliant and they felt that the students really had more of an idea than previous years about what an apprenticeship is and why they wanted certain roles.
