Over the past five weeks, the Upper sixth have been embarking on a pre-university enrichment programme, engaging with a series of lectures, workshops, tasks and seminars to prepare them for undergraduate study. Since half term, they have been participating in seminars with specialist teachers across no fewer than twenty subject fields – a testament to the remarkable expertise and enthusiasm of our staff, who have devised an astonishing array of material and tasks for the students.
The seminar meetings have been a real highlight of the term for students and teachers alike, buzzing with rigorous discussion and debate and a lot of laughter. We have all been enormously impressed by the relish with which the UVI have tackled this programme and the quality of their written contributions and participation in all activities has been simply outstanding. They have done us and themselves proud, and we look forward to their continued contributions during next week’s final round of seminars.
