Year 7 Set Sights on Top University Places

Girls from Year 7 went to King's College London recently as part of the King's Scholars scheme, which aims to help students in Lambeth, Southwark and Westminster gain places at the UK's top universities when they finish sixth form.

King's 1.18

At the start of the day our girls had a workshop on metacognitive skills (learning to learn). They then had a tour of the Strand campus to explore the life of a student, where by chance they bumped into former HGAED student Nura who is now studying English at King's following her fantastic results over the Summer. She is enjoying the start of her university course and is going to come back and meet with some of our Year 12s as they start thinking about university applications. The Year 7s were really excited to meet a past student who is actually studying at King's.

They had student ambassadors guiding them around during their visit. They then had to 'hot seat' their student and find out about life at university – and specifically any societies they belong to, or have been to in the past.

King's 2 1.18

Their main task was then to design their own university society and make a presentation, as if applying for funding from the Student Union. They had regular reflections on their performance both individually and as part of their team. In their final presentations they had to include a reflection of the skills they applied during the task.

This day will be followed up next term with in-school study skills sessions delivered by the student ambassadors.
