Primary School Outreach Programme
This programme will inspire more of the local primary school pupils to consider applying for a place at Aston as their choice of school for secondary education. As well as masterclasses on different subject areas running throughout the year, pupils will also be introduced to, and helped with, preparation for the entrance exam through a 10 hour familiarisation course during the summer term.
The familiarisation sessions will be common across the Foundation schools and will include practice at activities within the entrance test as well as general examination techniques. One of the aims of the sessions is to inspire confidence in students to apply for the test. KE Aston is offering sessions to local boys whilst KE Handsworth will run the sessions for the girls
