Twelve of our Upper Sixth formers have been awarded prizes for their research projects produced as part of the Waynflete Studies Programme. The award ceremony took place at Magdalen College on Friday 28th September, with the President of Magdalen College, Professor David Clary FRS, officiating.
Waynflete Studies is now in its fourth year and has
proved a tremendous success. It is an exciting aspect of life in the sixth form
at MCS, named after our fifteenth-century founder, Bishop William Waynflete,
whose ideals of intellectual excellence inspired the programme. Fulfilling his
founding vision, we have sought to bring school and university ever closer
Every member of the Lower Sixth participates in the programme, choosing their own research topic. Over the course of the year students produce a dissertation with the guidance of both internal and external tutors and significantly broaden their intellectual horizons in the process. An independent research project of this nature is the best possible preparation for life at university.
Waynflete Studies this year has produced some exceptional pieces of work, in an array of impressive subjects, and we are very proud of our students’ achievements. Our congratulations go to them, and to the many people who have supported them.
