Most Able Students Widen Cultural Horizons

Royal HollowayAt Harris Academy Chafford Hundred we offer a range of opportunities to our most able students, designed to widen their cultural and academic experiences and give them outstanding preparation for some of the country’s top universities, including Oxford and Cambridge.

As part of the Brilliant Club, for example, Year 7 and 8 students went to Royal Holloway University of London (pictured) to learn about university life. Brilliant Club is a programme that gives students the opportunity to study university level topics with a PhD research student. Students are currently completing a 1,500 essay and will graduate from the Brilliant Club programme in July in a ceremony at the University of Cambridge.

Year 9 pupils went for a tour at Christie's Auction House this month in preparation for their summer trip there where they will take part in an auction. They have also attended an art history lecture and learned about careers in this area. This opportunity was arranged through the Harris Experience programme, a cultural and academic enhancement programme for the most able secondary school students across the Harris Federation.

R&JYear 10 Harris Experience pupils went to Fitzwilliam College, Cambridge, where they took part in a range of activities and got to speak to a panel of students. They also took part in a mock trial run by the Lawyer Portal and watched Romeo and Juliet at the Royal Opera House (pictured).

Year 11 Harris Experience pupils took part in a philosophy workshop run by published philosopher Peter Worley of the Philosophy Foundation. They also completed a workshop into revision strategies and had an explanation of how university and sixth form study differs from GCSE.

We look forward to reporting on more of the experiences and opportunities we create for our most able students.
