On Friday the 4th July 2014 , Future Foundations delivered a smashing Higher Education aspiration day with Wimbledon Schools Partnerships.
The Wimbledon Schools Partnership includes King’s College School, Coombe Boys’ and Girls’ Schools, Ricards Lodge, the Ursuline and Raynes Park High Schools, St Mark’s Church of England Academy and Grey Court School. A key feature of its work is the Aspirations Project, in which pupils are selected each year to experience a three‐year programme of inspirational sessions which culminate in a Preparing for University Day in Year 12. Students must be academically able and the children of parents who have not been in Higher Education. The sessions include classes taught by King’s staff and a range of educational excursions, including university visits. In the spring term, Year 11 students on the project attend weekly GCSE revision classes taught by King’s staff.
Future Foundations have been working with King’s College School for a number of year and were thrilled to have the opportunity to carry on the work that they have been doing – it was a fantastic success!
The programme was Course Directed by Andy Dunn, Assistant Course Directed by Ella Simms and our Future Foundations coaches are Simone Vincenzi, Laurence Greiner, Wendi Lowe and Jakub Goscinny.
