Earlier this term Eirias Sixth Form artists enjoyed a study trip to the Walker and Tate galleries in Liverpool.

The purpose of the trip was to study artworks that related to their own individual projects.

Students made annotated drawings and sketches in the gallery to then influence their own work back in the classroom.

All thoroughly enjoyed the study visit and are now developing some great work as a result.

  • Seren Success

    Ysgol Eirias Year 12 students have been very actively involved in the Conwy and Denbighshire Seren programme this term.  The Seren Programme is a Welsh Assembly initiative to support students with high GCSE grade profiles to apply for competetive universities and courses.  Our students have engaged with a number of events at some of the UK's most prestigious universities.

    In June 10 Eirias students travelled to Oxford University with Dr Greenslade and like-minded students from neighbouring schools to attend the Open Day and investigate possible course applications for next year.  12 students also travelled to Birmingham University and a further 11 took part in a residential visit to Cardiff University.  Both Birmingham and Cardiff are part of the prestigious Russell Group of universities, which boast particulalry high standards of research.  This means that students are taught by academics at the cutting edge of research in their subject.  16 students also attended a Personal Statements workshop with Sandy Mill from Magdalene College, Cambridge to help them prepare their UCAS applications for 2018 entry.

    The programme appears to be having a positive impact judging by the success our students have had in securing some highly sought after places at various summer schools.  For example, Danielle Yu has gained a place at the Oxford UNIQ summer school for Law, Nye Michael has a place on a Humanities Summer School at Jesus College, Cambridge.  Daisy Coombs was also invited to attend an Open Day at Newnham College, Cambridge, following her success in a Languages essay competition.

    Earlier this year a group of 10 Eirias students regularly attended weekly sessions provided by leading professionals at Ysbyty Glan Clwyd to support students considering applications for Medicine or related subjects.
