Secondary Schools

As well as working with university students and professional organisations, we offer a range of courses and workshops specifically designed for high school students and school leavers.

Excellent essay writing requires more than just knowing structure and grammar. The Writing Hub uses the latest research in composition and rhetoric to prepare school students for success in their writing. We employ collaborative learning and self-evaluation as methods to invent and test arguments and arrange convincing essays. In addition, our programs improve students’ digital literacy so they are equipped to work in modern-day working environments.
