The school held an extremely successful and well-attended University Fair on Monday March 2nd. The event was aimed at Years 10,11 and 12 and we were delighted that so many Universities responded to our invitation to come into the school in order to show our students and their parents the vast range of degree-level opportunities open to them.
Universities attending included: Oxford , Bristol , Cardiff, Leicester, Bath, Goldsmiths, Exeter and Brunel along with representatives from UCAS and the Student Finance Service. Gap Year opportunities were on show with organisations specialising in gap year travel and volunteering opportunities also attending.
The Hall was packed all evening with excited parents and students who found it both informative and extremely well organised.
One parent commented:
‘It was really inspiring for my daughter to have a chance to speak to experts from the university sector – she now realises that she needs to start making plans and there are some very exciting possibilities open to her. It was a fantastic event!’
Plans are already underway for a similar event this time next year.
