On Friday 6th March we welcomed the Brighton University ambassadors who have been assisting our HPA (High Prior Achievers) students complete their extended project (EPQ = equivalent to a 50% A level in terms of content) work in English, Maths and Science. Feedback has been very positive:
“This work has taught me how to research and work with people who are already at University. It’s made me want to go more. It’s the first time at school I feel I have been able to stretch my imagination.”
Students have been liaising with their mentors from University on the Brightside mentoring app run by Brighton. It was great to see the students learning key study and research skills with the guidance from the university teams.
More such projects are in the pipeline!
