Towers Scholar Programme

Dear Parent/Carer,

We are excited to launch the Towers Scholar programme this term for year 7 and 8 students. This brand new programme gives students the opportunity to attend a mini-lecture on a variety of topics that students do not normally get the opportunity to learn in school.

The Towers Scholar programme will run in enrichment time on a Wednesday. Students can sign up to attend in the canteen before school or during lunchtime.

Students who attend all four lectures in term 4 will become a Towers Bronze Scholar, if they then attend four lectures in term 5 they will graduate as a Towers Silver Scholar and if they attend four lectures in term 6 they will graduate as a Towers Gold Scholar. Students will be awarded badges at each stage, which they can wear proudly on their blazers.
