The death of Stephen Hawking made us take time from Science Week to pause and consider his achievements.
Alexandra Park School are partnering with UCL on an exciting new project starting this Summer term. The project is being conducted in partnership with the Universities of Oxford and Cambridge, and will compare the effects of two social and emotional learning (SEL) programmes, which aim to improve young people’s study skills and wellbeing.
Students are invited to take part in an 8-week course as well as three data collection sessions, one before and two after completion of the programme.
At the start of the study students are randomly assigned to one of two SEL programmes. Participants must then attend a 40 minute lessons once a week for eight weeks, either on Wednesday or Thursday. These sessions will be led by a trained teacher and will be conducted in APS on Wednesday and Thursday after school for 40 minutes.
