Academic Enrichment: ‘Go Further’

Friday 5 February 2021

As part of the broader academic strand to Shrewsbury’s Lent Term remote provision, each Faculty will be providing one dynamic ‘Go Further’ session each week from Monday 25th January. Week 3 Now Added. 

This will be ‘off specification’ material and a fully interactive session in which pupils across the age range can participate and extend their academic interests in distinct curriculum areas beyond the timetable. These will take place on a rotational basis across the week at 5pm and Zoom invites will be sent out in advance.

Pupils in all year groups are welcome to attend any session – simply register your attendance with the lead teacher listed on the pupil noticeboard on Firefly. Each ‘Go Further’ event will last approximately 40 minutes. Please sign up in advance with the lead teacher.

Do contact Mr Mackridge for any further information or guidance about the programme (hgm@).
