Supernova Seminars

IMG 4466

We are currently developing our Cultural Capital programme within Highworth Grammar School in order to accumulate certain knowledge, behaviours and skills that a student can draw upon and which demonstrate their cultural awareness, knowledge and competence. This will support students to be successful in society, their career and the world of work.  As part of the programme we are excited to be launching ‘Supernova Seminars’.  


We have been working with our Partner Universities to develop this programme and have invited both academics and researchers to deliver taster seminars to our Year 11-13 students on a Monday lunchtime in PAS2 on various topics.

We would encourage all students to sign up to at least one of the scheduled seminars per term.
