Although the global situation means that we are unfortunately unable to run our Brightest Watts Summer Week in the usual format. Over the past few weeks, we have taken time to consider the options available and are now very excited to announce the updated Brightest Watts programme for 2020/2021 S5 pupils.
This programme is comprised of three parts:
* Brightest Watts eWeek – Monday 27 – Friday 31 July 2020
* Brightest Watts eWeek masterclasses – three dates throughout the year
* Brightest Watts eWeek Residential – Monday 12 – Wednesday 14 July 2021 (3 days and 2 nights)
The Brightest Watts programme aims to provide new S5 pupils with a motivational insight into university life. The atmosphere is friendly and supportive and the emphasis is on meeting new people, learning new skills and boosting confidence.
All activities on the Brightest Watts programme are free. We expect pupils to commit to taking part in all three parts of the programme.
Pupils who are interested in taking part in the programme can find further information and an application form at www.hw.ac.uk/summerweek<http://www.hw.ac.uk/summerweek>. Places are limited and although we welcome all applications, we will prioritise pupils from SIMD20 postcodes, those with care experience, those with caring responsibilities and those from schools with low progression rates to higher education. The deadline for application is Monday 6 July.
Speak to your Guidance/Pupil Support Teacher for more information.
