The school held its second hugely successful University Fair on Tuesday 3rd March 2015. The event was aimed at Years 10, 11 and 12 and we were delighted that over 35 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 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. Parents commented:
‘A very useful and informative evening’
‘We get wiser every year!’
‘A wonderful insight of what could be – Thank you’
We also had lovely comments from our students who found the evening a valuable and informative evening. One of our students commented:
‘I found it incredibly useful, especially for finding out different pathways’
‘Attentive, friendly and helpful representatives giving a clear explanation of what’s on offer’
We also had fantastic comments from the University representatives:
‘Students and parents were enthusiastic and it was refreshing that they are so focused’
‘A delightful event, students were all focused and parents were very supportive’
‘A very well organised event with polite and interested pupils and parents’
‘Best HE fair yet’
This unique event built on last year’s success will continue to inspire the next generation of University graduates. We are already looking forward to next year University Fair.
