The programme is designed for able and motivated Year 10 students who are willing to engage in all of the academic sessions and complete the pre-session tasks to gain the most from the programme.

We will give priority to the most disadvantaged schools and schools from our link regions of Norfolk, Suffolk and Hertfordshire for the live sessions. Schools form all regions of the UK are welcome to apply.

How does it work?

There are two options to choose from. Schools can request to attend the live workshops online, which run on Thursdays between 3.30−4.30 from 21 March until 13 June or schools can opt to receive the recordings of the sessions to use as part of their wider teaching.

What will the programme cover?

The programme will introduce topics that students will not usually have covered in school. Content will cover humanities, and the sciences.

In our 2024 programme we will cover:

  • Art History
  • Biology
  • Chemistry
  • Classics
  • Economics
  • English
  • Maths
  • Philosophy
  • Psychology

Each workshop involves a short assignment to be completed beforehand. This usually involves reading, watching a video or listening to a podcast.
