Free Saturday morning courses for girls and boys in Years 5-6
Applications for 2021 are now closed but we look forward to welcoming more children next year. In 2021 we have 82 children taking part.
We are delighted to introduce our new programme of exciting workshops for pupils who are interested in exploring specific subjects in more depth.
Previously, our series of courses offered on Saturday mornings was known as our SHiNE programme, however, we are excited to announce that we now have a new name which reflects the importance of the partnership between Withington and local primary schools – SHiNE Together.
Each year a selection of girls and boys from local state primary schools come to Withington on a Saturday morning to take part in an exciting programme of themed courses. However, this year the programme will be delivered online.
The programme is coordinated by Withington colleagues Mrs Amanda Collard and Mrs Natalie Baguley and they organise a wide choice of topics delivered by specialist Withington teachers. The project aims to enthuse and inspire young people, introducing them to new subjects and helping them develop their knowledge of those already studied in their school.
This year, we are delighted to offer a selection of new topics which means that children can choose from Art; Computing; Creative Writing; Design Technology; Drama and Spanish. For the first time, we are also offering pupils interested in science and engineering the opportunity to take part in an independent project which could lead to a British Science Association Discovery or Bronze Crest Award.
Applications for this programme are managed between the applicants’ Headteacher and our SHiNE Together Coordinators.
