This exciting opportunity allows a number of Year 9 pupils to independently work on a project using skills from one of four specialised careers with the help of on-line mentors.
Undergraduate volunteers from several subject specific areas, visit school to provide additional tuition to groups of selected pupils enabling stretch and challenge.
Classroom led activities from the Year Progress Leader and during IAG open up pupils’ awareness and thinking about their futures. Opportunities exist to introduce pupils to this valuable resource.
World Class Schools
