Chrysalis Summer School 2014

By January 14, 2014Current Projects

The Chrysalis Partnership of 26 schools from across the boroughs of Haringey, Camden, Ealing, Newham and Barnet has been built upon a common sense that there is not enough genuine subject–specific extension work for the brightest pupils, nor support for, and shared expertise in, applications to selective universities.

The initial focus of the partnership remains the Chrysalis Scheme, an ambitious project to bring a university access scheme to gifted and talented cohorts from across North London.  Pupils are invited to engage in a programme of dedicated activities, the centrepiece of which is an intensive summer school (four days for Year 12 and two days for Year 10).

What will happen at the Chrysalis Summer School?

For Year 10, it will be a fun and interactive 2 day programme consisting of a series of motivational workshops and subject specific tutorials in mathematics, English, economics, science or philosophy.

For Year 12, the 4 day programme will nurture the students’ potential academically, professionally and personally. It will be a fun week full of activities consisting of subject-specific tutorials including: English, mathematics, physics, biology, chemistry, geography, history, economics, philosophy, politics, art, MFL, a series of workshops dealing with presentation skills and interview preparation. There will be a series of UCAS seminars covering the whole university admissions process, from choosing institutions and courses to an individual ‘mock’ interview and seminars from representatives from selective universities.


Both the Year 10 and Year 12 Summer Schools will take place at: Highgate School, North Road, N6 4AY
