Sciences - Autumn 2017
Our Sciences Masterclasses aim to bring together like-minded Year 5 children (Year 6 in the Autumn Term) from local primary schools to work through a variety of stimulating scientific investigations using techniques and equipment that are not usually available to children of this age.

Although each session is independent of the others, we expect children to attend all of the Masterclasses in their course. There is no charge but places are limited and we cannot guarantee a place for every child who applies.
We have written to head teachers of participating schools to invite them to nominate suitable children. The deadline for applications is 8am on Wednesday 28 June; we will confirm offers of places by the evening of Wednesday 12 July. Our next series after this one will be for 2017-18 Year 5 pupils in Summer Term 2018 and we will write to head teachers of participating schools by mid-February.
Joining instructions for successful applicants plus an aide-memoire for parents are below.
