A group of year 9 students visited the University of Leeds for a Higher Education Experience Day. Students had a fantastic day learning all about University, they had a tour of the Campus and took part in the ‘University Challenge’ activity at the end of the day. Our team did us proud when they won the quiz and were awarded some chocolates for their efforts. The students thought the event was very inspiring and feel more motivated to work hard in lessons to achieve the best grades they can.

A group of 60 year 7 students took part in the first stage of the ‘Student Journey’ programme with York St John University. The programme as a whole, aims to raise pupils’ aspirations and awareness of higher education and in the long run improve attainment and achievement at school. During the programme pupils will gain an insight into the opportunities available beyond school and explore life at university. We believe that this will encourage pupils to understand their options after Year 11.
