The Horizons project is the third iteration of the rolling two-year project which began in 2016-18 with Cool to be Clever and continued in 2018 with Cool to be Curious (2018 – 2020).
Academic staff at Putney and Roehampton work together to design a different practical or academic project for pupils to complete each term. It is aimed at ‘gifted and talented’ primary school pupils from Year 5 and follows them through two years of involvement until they reach the end of Year 6 and are beginning the transition to Senior School.
Putney High School’s Year 9 – 10 act as mentors to the younger children over the course of the two years, looking with them at topics from Philosophy, STEM and the Environment to Sports Science, Art and Music.
“The whole programme has given the children a chance to expand their horizons, try something new, work with other children and of course have fun! Thank you”
