Brilliant Club – Scholars Programme
Monday 15th October 2018

Wickersley School and Sports College is pleased to announce that once again in partnership with HEPPSY+ we are running the Brilliant Club – Scholars Programme with a group of Year 9 students.

Last year students worked closely with Tamsyn a PhD student from the University of Sheffield on a research topic related to ‘zoo-archaeology’. 10 students completed their 2000 word research task and gained a grade at least equivalent to the level expected of a first year undergraduate student.
Several students attended and presented at a ‘graduation’ event in February at the University of Manchester including Madison, Isobel, Lahana, Alice, Jess and Lucia.

This year students are going to work on a STEM-related research project with a launch trip to Manchester in November and then ongoing tutorials with a visiting lecturer in school.
