Higher Education Day
We were delighted to host our annual Higher Education Day on Tuesday 14 March for our 6.1 students who are thinking about Higher Education.
There were four activities for students to attend during the day including a talk in the College Theatre on ‘Why go to university and how to choose’; a session in an IT room using Unifrog to search for UK university choices; a visit to the HE fair in the Sports Hall and a talk from university student ambassadors on what life is like as a student. There were 75 universities in attendance at the HE Fair and students were able to talk to university representatives and pick up prospectuses. HE Day is an integral part of our progression guidance programme as up to 85 per cent of our students go onto higher education.
The HE Fair remained open for parents, 6.1 and 6.2 students to attend in the evening. Parents and students were also able to attend 3 evening talks, including ‘ How to Apply for Oxbridge and Cambridge’; ‘Studying Abroad’ and ‘How do universities support students with disabilities.
