The Haberdashers’ Aske’s Boys’ School is delighted to announce that they have recently launched their Frontiers Programme for Year 13 pupils.
At its core, the Frontiers Programme is a holistic programme of live online sessions. It aims to give Habs students greater insights into the area of study that they have opted to read at university, to continue to broaden their intellectual horizons and to continue to support their pastoral wellbeing, so that they can maintain the momentum needed to start university informed and on the right track.
The School has recognised that this new way of working is a challenging time for our students – especially for the Year 13 cohort, who will be progressing to study at university in the autumn. As part of the Frontiers Programme, Habs will be offering over 70 tutorials from staff, over 50 massive open online courses and over 40 talks from Old Haberdashers. The School’s glittering alumni will be on hand to talk about their experiences at university, offering advice and guidance to cover all things academic, co-curricular and pastoral. Topics include managing work-life balance, mental health and wellbeing, relationships and more.
What our students say…
Aniket, Year 13: "I’m absolutely loving Frontiers and I think it is one of the best things happening during lockdown."
Raphael, Year 13: “I am really enjoying the opportunity to learn for the sake of learning and to try new subjects."
Ejaaz, Year 13: "I think the programme has been fantastic so far and the tutorials I have attended have been extremely enjoyable and informative.”
Enuka, Year 13: "The talks have been really informative - looking at aspects of university life and knowledge of subjects that I wouldn’t have seen before otherwise."
What our staff say…
Mrs Miller-Smith, Teacher of MFL: "How lovely to see the list of old boys willing to give up their time. Speaks volumes of their experiences here."
Mr Bown, Director of Teaching: "My Frontiers tutorial was one of the most enjoyable experiences of the lockdown period - it was inspiring and energising to be able to talk about my passion to a diverse group of interested young men."
Mr Lock, Headmaster: “The Habs Frontiers Programme is designed to provide Year 13 students with the best resources ahead of their undergraduate study. It is vitally important that they are fully equipped before they begin their university courses and these holistic online sessions will give them a plethora of opportunities to continue to learn, develop and grow, not just academically, but also more broadly to support their wellbeing. I am delighted that our students are able to benefit from these excellent sessions.”
