Gifted and Talented Programme
Gifted and Talented Programme at Ellen Wilkinson
Through the St John’s Inspire Programme, we want to encourage all pupils with exceptional promise to aim high, to stretch themselves academically and to be confident in making well-founded applications to a top university like Oxford.
Study Days at Oxford University offer high-achieving Year 12 students at non-selective state schools an opportunity to experience higher level study in their chosen subject. Subjects include:
- Medicine and Biomedical Sciences
- Maths and Computer Science Study Day
- Modern Languages
The Target Oxbridge Year 10 programme provides students of Black African and Caribbean heritage in Year 10 and Year 11 with an insight into life as an Oxbridge student and how to prepare to make an Oxbridge application. It also provides students with an insight into the A Level subject combinations that will enable them to study the subjects they are interested in at university.
This programme supports A-levels Mathematics students who are considering studying a maths-related degree at university.
