3 day free residential research workshop run by the Richardson Institute
30th and 31st August & 1st September 2017 at Lancaster University
Lancaster University has recently celebrated its 50th Anniversary. The Department of Politics, Philosophy and Religion wishes to revitalise Politics/International Relations by bringing together the 35 finest young political minds (Year 12, 16 -17 year olds) to build towards the next 50 years of the University’s life and the next half century of UK Politics.
In this unique event, successful applicants will work with Politics/IR academic staff and the Richardson Institute, the UK’s oldest Peace and Conflict Research Centre, over three days to produce a series of reports on the future of Britain as seen through the eyes of people entering into the world of politics.
Students will stay on campus in Lancaster University’s award-winning accommodation and will experience a range of evening activities run by Lancaster University’s Student Ambassadors.
Places at the event will be determined by completion of the application form below, in which the best entrants will be invited. As a student at Rhyddings you can apply for this course. Please see Mrs Crawshaw for further details. All applications must be completed by 15th April.
Mock exams for Year 11 begin on Monday 23 January.
All other years will have assessments during that week, however these will be done in class time where possible.
Year 11 students should also be aware that actual GCSE exams begin shortly, starting with the Art exam.
