A Buzzing Atmosphere at the Nexus VI Open Morning

By on Nov 25, 2017 in Blog |

It was great to see so many enthusiastic Year 11 students join us for the Nexus VI Open Morning today at the Nexus campus. The Nexus VI programme is expanding to build on the amazing successes of this year, and students from all over Cornwall came to see what we offer.

The students and their parents heard from Dr Foster about the exciting programme that has been described as ‘breathtaking’ by NACE, the national charity for able children in education. The Nexus VI programme is designed for able students who intend to study STEM subjects at A Level. As well as studying Maths and Sciences at the Nexus campus amongst other students targeted As and A*s at A Level, students will experience an unrivalled package of opportunities and support.

The aim of Nexus VI is to provide a springboard to the most competitive courses at the best universities; within the programme there is a special stream for students destined for Oxbridge.

If you are interested in applying for the Nexus VI programme for 2018, it is not too late. Please contact for further information or to arrange a tour of the campus.
