Presigious K+ Students
Five of our Year 12 students have joined some of London's brightest students by earning places on the K+ Programme at King’s College, London.
We have received fantastic news recently, that five of our Year 12 students have won a place on K+ Programme at King’s College, London and are now fully enrolled. They have joined a prestigious group of brightest students from state schools across London and are going to participate at various activities organised by different subject streams:
Law – Wiktoria Abu Khdair
History and Politics – Suneet Dias and Kerry Adams
Languages and Literature – Anna Cremin
Maths and Computer Sciences – Julian Touma
K+ is a two-year programme which aims to equip Year 12 students with the knowledge, confidence and skills to transition successfully to university.
K+ students will:
- Learn and practice key study skills and produce an academic project
- Attend K+ Spotlight Summer School
- Receive support and guidance including a student e-mentor
- Take part in academic master classes, cultural visits and careers-related experiences
The two year scheme includes:
- A current King’s student as e-mentor
- Academic taster sessions and master classes
- Cultural trips and experiences
- Careers advice and work experience opportunities
- Support and guidance on applying to and preparing for university
- Supervision from a PhD tutor to produce an Academic Project
- A summer school
- Lots more!
The first event K+ students attended was an evening induction in November when parents and school staff were also invited to find out more about the K+ programme and meet the staff involved. There will be further opportunity for teachers and advisors to come along to additional K+ events and also parents and families of K+ students are encouraged to attend certain events. However, as K+ is about developing students’ independence, the majority of activities are just for them. Participation on K+ is not a guarantee of a place at King’s. However, students who successfully complete the programme will be given special consideration in the admissions process. K+ students are also strongly encouraged to refer to K+ in their personal statement, irrespective of where they apply to study.
