Future Scholars Launch

Future Scholars Launch

We had a wonderful night launching our Future Scholars Programme on Wednesday evening, welcoming Professor Tom Ward, Pro Vice Chancellor at Durham University to speak about the importance of scholarship and the value of academia. The launch event gave both scholars and parents the chance to hear about the exciting opportunities the programme offers; lectures and seminars, to university visits, conferences and the chance to place scholarship at the fore front of school life. The programme will provide students with the time, support and resources to explore a wide range of academic topics and develop their skills around discussion and research. We are excited to begin the programme with a range of talks, including the morality of drones in modern warfare and the relevance of biophysics to everyday life.

A huge thank you to Year 13 Beth Scott, who spoke about her experiences as a Sixth Former and medicine applicant; it was wonderful to hear her Dyke House journey over the past seven years. Beth?s recent offers from both Manchester and York University is a testament to her hard work and dedication, something she shared with our scholars.
