Wednesday

KS3 Scholars 

The Scholar Programme and related ‘extra-curricula’ opportunities are designed to stimulate, stretch and enrich learning for the most able and ensure that scholars are engaged in activities relating to the wider community. This will mean that the Programme will provoke a thirst for knowledge, develop a respect for academic rigour and scholarly values, develop an open, inquiring, creative and logical, growth-based mindset to ensure that high ability learners are and remain ambitious, enterprising and socially responsible when pursuing their specific educational pathway. Furthermore, the Scholars Programme will have an English discipline base but will assume a distinctive approach to learning that is ‘interdisciplinary’ (i.e. make links and connections between many other subjects, especially other academic EBAC subjects, in order to ensure that all scholar learning has the potential to be as original,  innovative and widely useful as possible). To use an idea from ‘Alice in Wonderland’, scholars will be expected, as a commitment to developing originality of thought, to identify, follow and evolve individual ‘intellectual and moral white rabbits’! It is also hoped that students will also be able to learn alongside members of staff who are also interested in his method of learning and in gaining some specialist subject knowledge and professional development.
