Aims of the project
Aim is to foster closer links with partnership schools, to develop local English Literature students' experience of the subject and to help equip them for life as English Lit undergraduates.
Background and goals
The partnership has run for the past three years and numbers of participants have grown each year in that time
Lesson resources are generated by a Rugby School teacher for each of the sessions.
The key anticipated outcome is to help develop local pupils' confidence in studying English texts and to broaden their experience. It is hoped that their experiences of studying alongside pupils from other schools will enable them to present themselves as more plausible candidates when they are interviewed for university courses.
Involvement of pupils at our school has been to help prepare and run some of the sessions.
24 partner school pupils have this year been the recipients of this additional teaching of English Literature.
Pupil ages 16-18.
Frequency and duration
On-going project. At present this has run on a weekly basis and is set to continue to do so.
