9 STAR PROGRAM UPDATE

The 9 Star academic program started at the beginning of this school year with our six top academic scholars taking part.  

We now have nine students on the program and have developed subject study areas into Leadership and Teamwork, Game Theory, Bitesize Philosophy and Rapid Greek.  

The participating students are making the most of the opportunity to study different subject using different techniques.  Watch this space as we will be bringing you the views of those pupils taking part in the program.

The concept of 9 STAR at Sedbergh, a new programme launching for our top academic scholars in Year 9, captured the imagination of a cohort of our teachers, many of whom found that their intellectual interest had been satisfied only when they went to study at Oxford, Cambridge, or other leading universities.

These teachers wish that they had experienced this opportunity when they were in Year 9 and have driven the content of this unique academic course.
