Bright Sparks

Bright Sparks - Cover

Our Year 6 Bright Sparks programme aims to raise aspirations and get students thinking about the prospect of going to University in the future.

The programme encompasses a number of different activities including:

  • Introduction to University Workshop

This 1 hour workshop is delivered by a member of our team in school to give students an overview of University and all the subjects that they could study.

  • Discover University – Campus Visit (9:30am – 2:30pm)

Students are invited to the University of Leicester to meet current students, take a tour of the University and find out about all the different societies that they could join.

  • University Graduation

Students are invited to ‘graduate’ from the Bright Sparks programme, which is usually done as part of a school assembly, where parents are welcome to join. All students receive a certificate for their participation in the programme.
