Top students from Pyrland School are applying to attend Cambridge University’s Summer School after finishing their exams. Christ’s College, Cambridge, is set to host some of our Year 11 students who will take part in masterclasses in subjects such as Medicine, Law, History, Biological and Physical Sciences. They will also find out how to make future applications to this world-class university.
Academy student Stephanie Masca said: “I’ve already applied. I’m so excited about this and would never have even dreamed of this as a possibility. I can’t wait to find out if I’ve been selected.”
As well as choosing their strand of study, students will have the chance to study something new such as Economics, Languages or Archaeology.
Headteacher Lisa Webber said: “This is a fabulous opportunity for some our students and shows we are unashamedly ambitious about their potential and what they can achieve.”
The three-day event runs from August 20-23 and is fully funded for students, meaning accommodation and meals are included as well as the tuition and experiences on offer. Students just have to make their way to Cambridge University for the event, although support may even be available to help with this too.
To apply on-line for the Summer School, students have to be on target to gain a majority of 7-9 grades in the exams this summer, as well as be going onto study academic qualifications such as A-levels or the International Baccalaureate next year.
The deadline for applications is April 23. For more details students need to contact Mr Shrimpton, Aspire Lead & Head of Faculty.
