On Tuesday 3rd March our Careers Advisor Mrs Bentley, along with other members of staff, took two groups of Year 9 students to Leeds Trinity University for another ‘Student Experience Day’. Over recent months the academy has taken the entire year group to the university campus to experience a ‘day in the life’ event ran by the Education and Careers department.

During all three visits the students toured around the university campus, visiting all the important sites such as the library, the top class sports facilities, lecture theatres, and most importantly the student dining hall. The enthusiastic Student Ambassadors mentored the students during the visits, answering the many questions our students had about courses, opportunities for developing talents and interests, and how the managed to live away from home. Workshops on student finance and ‘LTU Kahoots’ were a huge success, and opened their eyes to the endless possibilities that higher education has to offer.
