TCA has launched an exciting new programme for high achieving  students.

Those in Years 7-10 who have an average of level 5 from their KS2 reading and their KS2 mathematics scores in Year 6 are being selected to take part in the Kroto scheme.

The programme has been named after Nobel Prize winner Sir Harold Kroto who was born in Wisbech in 1939 and died on 30th April 2016. His parents were World War Two refugees and he went on to become a university professor, winning the Nobel Prize for Chemistry in 1996 for his part in the discovery of ‘Bucky-balls. These are naturally occuring molecules.

The Kroto programme contains assemblies, trips, parent evenings, career advice and competitions.

There will be a session 6 from Thursday 24th June for Kroto students to

·         Use Kudos to look at careers advice

·         Use the internet to do homework

·         Talk to Mrs Taylor about their current subjects and where they need support
