Masterclasses 2021

Our 2021 Masterclass Launch

It was after only one session of our 2020 masterclasses that we had to pull the plug. So we know that our 2021 programme is eagerly anticipated! This year will understandably be different but we are not about to capitulate – York ISSP tutors have pulled out all the stops to offer challenging and engaging masterclasses that will dazzle in a virtual space!

After a year of being cooped up, it was decided that the theme to explore this year will be: Freedom to Choose? Whether Y7/8 or Y9/10 we have a range of disciplines on offer to investigate this concept: art, classics, the green economy, logic, mathematics, programming and psychology. One thing’s for sure: being ‘free to choose’ is going to prove a tough decision!

Y7-8 Programme

Students will study a different masterclass topic each week in a 90 minute online session. They will be given the opportunity to select their preferences. Although we can’t guarantee everyone’s Top Three, we can promise that the masterclasses they are assigned will prove stimulating, exciting and ultimately challenging.

Y9-10 Programme

There are four masterclasses available this year, from which the students choose one they will study in depth across three 90 minute online sessions. These are not taster sessions but are designed to be academically challenging, thought provoking and stimulating opportunities to learn more about a subject that the student loves.

Masterclass descriptors, dates and details will follow shortly.
