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.
Probably the best educational experience I’ve ever had.Chantel Kamara-Bah, Hornsey School
