Year 8 and 9 Independent Research Projects

The Heritage Independent Research Essay/Project promotes  independent study skills in Year 8 and 9 pupils. It provides an opportunity for self learning, allowing pupils to choose a topic and run with it, digging deeper than they would during regular lessons or homework assignments. This year, five pupils from Year 8 and five from Year 9 successfully completed an independent research project. Their hard work was recognised during a lunchtime celebration on 18th May. Here are the pupils who completed a project. Well done to all!
