Ysgol Bro Gwaun Scholars Program

Twelve year nine and ten Ysgol Bro Gwaun pupils have recently visited Bristol University as part of the launch trip on the Scholars programme.  They have made a positive start to an eight week commitment which aims to provide insight and challenge to work at a level of work displayed at university. Being able to complete the task will provide pupils with confidence in their ability and will also aid university application, giving them a unique edge over other applicants. They have already attended their first tutorial based upon ‘The Microbial Hunger Games’.

The Scholars Programme recruits PhD researchers, trains them as university access professionals and places them as tutors in schools to deliver programmes of university style tutorials to small groups of high potential pupils. Pupils study academic subjects based on their PhD tutor’s research, completing weekly homework assignments and a final written assignment.  We very much look forward to working alongside Dr Allison Zwarycz from Aberystwyth University. The programme finishes with an assignment submission and trip to another partner university. Here pupils have a campus tour, meet undergraduates and receive guidance from university admissions staff.  We look forward to a celebratory graduation trip in the new year, when the pupils will gain recognition of their hard work and determination to succeed in this challenging, yet inspiring project.

We have high expections for ourselves as a school and for all of our pupils.
