Thinking about life after Wickersley? Or are you unsure of where or what you’d like to do next? Why not…
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.
