The Programme Schedule

The RAY programme is a two-year programme which launches in November and in the first year runs from December through to April/May. The second-year runs from December through to March and ends with a university visit. For those pupils who complete the programme, pupils receive an invitation to an awards event.

All of the sessions take place in the late afternoons, from 5 pm–6 pm and students are expected to make their own way to and from the college unless parents are bringing them. However, parents are not expected to wait for their child.

There are no costs involved to your child whilst on the programme, and your child will not be expected to conduct any additional work/homework outside of their time with us in the classroom.

A typical schedule is shown below although dates and events are subject to change:
