Honours Academy Evening

Honours Academy Evening

On Wednesday 13 March the college hosted its biggest ever Honours Academy launch. The venue was full to the rafters with over 450 SJR Applicants and their parents in attendance.

Those present benefitted from an array of speakers who explained the potential benefits of the Honours Academy, heard from, and met some current and former Honours Programme students and had the opportunity to discuss their future with the Honours Academy team.

Speakers at the event included Principal Peter McGhee CBE, Elliott Hine (Division Leader and Honours Academy Co-ordinator), Michelle McGlown (Head of Religious Studies and EPQ Co-ordinator) along with current and former students Grace, Izzy and Jacob.

Those in attendance were also given the opportunity to attend additional talks on both the MDV (Medics, Dentist and Vets), and the Future Lawyers Academies.

In the coming weeks the college will host its annual Applicant Parents’ Conference, applicants are asked to check their emails for details of how to register for this event which is expected to be a sell out.
