Economics Enrichment Day

Pupils from Bradfield and three local schools spend a day together listening to lectures, going through past papers and receiving advice for exams. 

Pupils have lunch together and end the afternoon with a quiz. 

Aims

* Pupil enrichment 

* Staff and pupil collaboration 

Background

The partnership came about through communication between Bradfield's Head of Econ and Theale Green's Head of Econ. They realised that their aims for preparing U6th for the exam were the same so joined forces for an enrichment day. 

 

Resources

Bradfield facilities, partner school minibuses, Bradfield lunch provided. 

Impact

Testimonials below:

As a school we struggle to provide certain things for our students as they inevitably come with a price tag that we can’t meet, so all the work you are providing us is invaluable. Looking forward to working with you on other elements!

 

I wanted to drop you a quick email to say a huge thank you to both of you for all that you have done to help Theale Green School.  Today I was lucky enough to attend the excellent Economics revision trip which I cannot talk highly enough of.  Our year 13 students have had a roller coaster ride over the last couple of years, and the students who attended today took a huge amount from the day – they were full of compliments for the day as they left.  A huge thank you to you Lawrence, and the team, for the significant workload that would have gone in to the event to make it run smoothly.

Pupil Involvement

Frequency

Annual but this could be revised and we hope to do the same with other subjects.
