Miss Lauder explains how we support students with their university applications.

There will be five Scholar Programmes in the next academic year: Medicine, Engineering, Humanities (including Law and Politics), Linguistics and Oxbridge.

For each of these there is a recommended programme of study (see below) as well as regular academic mentoring sessions with a tutor who specialises in the relevant field. These programmes will require students to take part in additional enrichment activities relating to The William Perkin Scholar Programme, the University pathway as well as relevant work experience and the opportunity to complete an extended project qualification. As there are limited places available on each of the scholarship programmes, there is likely to be a high level of competition for places.

The importance of developing into a well-rounded, global citizen has always been of equal importance to academic success at William Perkin. Therefore, we commit a significant amount of curriculum time to our exceptional wider learning offer.

Head of Year 12 Miss Smart gives an overview of wider learning opportunities we expect students to take part in at William Perkin as part of the C.A.S.E. programme which ensures students spend time developing skills in four core areas: Creativity, Action, Service and Employability.
