Hanwell Schoolgirl Proves To Be a Bright Spark

Oaklands Primary pupil wins diploma for exceptional academic potential

Prisha taking part in the Bright Sparks programme

Prisha from Oaklands Primary in Hanwell has just received her Bright Sparks diploma and a goody bag from Latymer Upper School.

Bright Sparks is a free programme run by Latymer Upper School for Year 5 students who show exceptional academic potential.

Each year, teachers from Latymer’s Maths, English and Science departments run sessions for bright and curious-minded children from local primary schools in the area.

The emphasis of the workshops is on mini-projects, creativity and hands-on practical challenges giving the children a fun and interactive experience of secondary school learning, and an introduction to the level of requirements for the 11+ exams set by selective schools like Latymer.

This year due to Covid-19 restrictions the programme had to be run entirely online, but it didn’t stop Prisha and her peers having a great time.

Latymer Upper School’s Autumn Open Days will take place on Saturday 11 September and Saturday 2 October 2021 for those who are interested in registering their child to sit the 11+ entrance exam in January 2022.

We’ve always done that and won’t be changing, in fact we’d like to do more.

However, the readership that these stories generates is often below that needed to cover the cost of producing them. Our financial resources are limited and the local media environment is intensely competitive so there is a constraint on what we can do.

We are therefore asking our readers to consider offering financial support to these efforts. Any money given will help support community and public interest news and the expansion of our coverage in this area.
