Scholars Programme

Cornwall College St Austell LEVEL: Pre Entry Level Foundation Learning

At Cornwall College, we pride ourselves on the consistently high level of success that our students are achieving, with an increasing number progressing to top universities to study their chosen degrees year-on-year.

We work closely with local schools to support motivated students to make the most of their GCSE study in preparation for A-level success. Our Scholars Programme offers aspirational Year 11 students a range of masterclass sessions, designed to enrich their curriculum beyond exam preparation.

The sessions cover a diverse and challenging range of content, designed to push students academically to achieve their best. The masterclasses will not only help augment success at GCSE level but lay the groundwork for continued aspirational study during A-levels.

The Scholars Programme consists of three after-school masterclasses, delivered at Cornwall College St Austell in the evening to align with school enrichment activities.

The sessions will take place once per half-term, beginning in the second half term of the autumn term. This means that the programme will be completed before Easter, allowing plenty of time for that all important exam revision.
