at this with them from May.
The Lucy Cavendish College Summer Preparation Programme 2023 is designed
to bridge the gap between GCSE study to A-Levels by providing students with a
month-long programme of academic enrichment tailored to their stage of the
curriculum.
The programme will consist of study skills workshops on a range of important
themes such as time management and essay writing, university readiness
sessions to support students as they plan their next steps to top Universities like
Cambridge, and substantive knowledge sessions, designed to supplement
students' foundational academic knowledge so that they can hit the ground
running when they start their A-Levels.
Lucy Cavendish College is the most diverse College in
Cambridge, admitting over 90% of our UK students from state
schools. As part of our commitment to widening participation,
we are delighted to launch our flagship virtual outreach
programme, the Lucy Cavendish College Academic
Attainment Programme, for the third year running.
Academic Attainment Programme
What does the programme involve?
Students will participate in regular subject-specific enrichment
classes in each of their core A-Level (or equivalent) subjects, with
the aim of strengthening students' skills and knowledge and raising
attainment and confidence in their current studies.
Monthly Peer Discussion Groups will also offer students the
opportunity to continuously develop their oracy, critical thinking,
and problem-solving skills.
