Electus Programme

Main page content (1 column)

The Collingham Electus Programme is designed to stretch our most able students in their AS year beyond the requirements of the examination syllabus, by engaging them in a cross-curricular programme of activities in the Autumn and Spring Terms and offering them the opportunity - under the guidance of our specialist tutors - to write a Collingham Dissertation on the subject of their choice during the summer vacation.

The chief aims of Electus are to enable students to continue to learn about areas of the curriculum they may not have taken forward to A Level, and to foster pleasure in independent learning and a sense of personal achievement through completion of the dissertation. Participation in the programme also enhances a student’s profile for the UCAS application process, particularly Oxbridge entry. We ask each student to present a summary of his work to the other members of the Electus cohort early in Year 13, thereby developing all-important skills in public speaking.
