Impact

 

In 2017-18, for the third year running, St Faith’s is running Masterclasses for pupils from Milton Road Primary school. The sessions are led by Heads of academic Departments, and each provides a 90-minute session for seven pupils. The sessions covered include English, Maths, Science, Languages (modern and classical), Humanities, Engineering and Computing. The classes have been very well received by the pupils who have attended. A different group of Year 6 children makes up each visit, and St Faith’s provides transport as well as tuition. The sessions have been very well received and the children and accompanying staff are always very positive. Our staff have enjoyed the experience of sharing their own enthusiasm with groups of engaged and appreciative pupils.
