The Scholar’s Programme supports pupils in developing the knowledge, skills and ambition to secure places at highly selective universities.
This is achieved through placing PhD and post-doctoral researchers into schools to deliver a series of university style tutorials. They have been chosen because they are passionate about their subject; have lots of knowledge about university and can help develop academic skills.
Students from James Hornsby are taught in small groups giving greater opportunity to develop questions, partake in debates and develop their own ideas on a range of topics. After each session there is a marked piece of Homework. The programme starts and finishes with a University trip to a highly selective university and culminates with a 1500 word essay.
