Inquiring Minds: Cokethorpe Scholars’ Podcast

The Scholars from First Form to Lower Sixth Form undertake their independent research projects during the Scholars’ AOB session each week. The quality and breadth of work produced across the board was superb. To share this research and the Scholars’ enthusiasm for it, a new Scholars’ Podcast has been created. The Inquiring Minds podcast sees Fifth and Sixth Form Scholars interview the younger Scholars about their projects.
