Year 7 Wilton Scholar Workshop

North West Gifted and Talented led an excellent virtual workshop on Friday for 30 Year 7 Wilton Scholars (a group of pupils who have demonstrated high levels of academic excellence). Determined that during lockdown our pupils should still be stretched and challenged, the event was a masterclass to encourage lateral thinking and problem solving. Pupils were even given an opportunity to flex their debating muscles as they discussed a series of philosophical questions. Organised and supervised by Mrs Doran, the event lasted over an hour and utilised video conferencing to enable pupils to participate almost as fully as they would in a classroom environment. This event was the first of a series of such events organised for the pupils this term.
