Gifted & Talented Masterclass
On Friday 9th March, a group of high achieving year 10 students were selected to attend a Gifted & Talented Masterclass, which was being held in Central London.
The purpose of the day was to delve into topical issues and to equip the students with critical thinking skills.
The students had the opportunity to hear from experienced lecturers from universities, which included Oxford University. The day consisted of interactive university style talks and it gave the students a taste of university life.
The day took some of the students out of their comfort zone, and it really got them thinking outside the box. They were focused, and made an effort to really engage with the other attendees and the speakers.
At the end of the day, they had a Q&A session, which really highlighted their level of understanding and enjoyment of the day.
The students were excellent ambassadors for the school and really shone on the day.
A big thank you to Ms Gilliland and Ms Bateson for accompanying the students on the day.
The day was one of many opportunities available as part of the Academy's exceptional Raising Aspirations Enrichment programme, designed to enhance skills, knowledge and cultural awareness.
