This morning we had the pleasure of welcoming Mr Harris from Westminster University who came to speak to our Year 8 students about University.
Harris asked whether they were considering it while giving them facts about day to day life and what to expect. I think it's safe to say that many of the students were surprised by the concept of studying just one subject, full time courses meaning potentially 12-15 hours a week with days off during the week and the courses you can study such as wine making and football studies. Our students were genuinely interested, stayed focused and have left knowing more about university. This will plant a seed so they can start thinking about life beyond school whether the route they want to take is University or something else.
