Four places for our aspirational Year 11s at the LSE!
The LSE is a top London university, and we have the chance of four places for our students to attend a week of summer school there, from 6th to 10th July (after exams).
The places are for students interested in studying Social Sciences: History, Geography, Sociology, etc, and the summer school will also prepare our Year 11s for Higher Education. In that week, students will have the opportunity to experience university life first-hand and meet current university students. Hopefully this experience will encourage them to pursue university careers.
The programme consists of the following:
Classes, lectures, workshops and group discussions
Opportunities to develop team-work, problem solving, project and presentation skills
An off-site trip
Advice on applying to university
An LSE certificate presented in a closing ceremony.
I shall be asking Heads of House and teachers for nominations, but would also welcome students volunteering themselves. Please let us know any requests to be considered by half-term.
