Over the last half term, Academic Scholars in Key Stage 3 have been busy identifying topics for independent projects. The project is part of the Academic Scholars programme for 2018-19. The purpose of the project is to develop an understanding of a specific subject and by completing the project pupils also learn skills related to time management, research, presentation and evaluation.
Edith Lowe is a Year 8 Academic Scholar. Through her project, she is exploring the appeal of the Harry Potter books. As part of her project she has decided to raise some money for the Lumos Charity, and will include information about the work of the charity in her final presentation. Last week she sold Harry Potter themed chocolate and raised nearly £70.00!
