Year 10 University Experience Days

On Wednesday 23rd October and Thursday 24th October, all Year 10 students travelled to Sunderland University on a visit designed to open up the potential of higher education to everyone.

Our students met staff and students at the University and were given a detailed tour of the site. They were introduced to the wide range of courses that can be studied at University and myths were discussed that might prevent some students from considering higher education.

In the afternoon University staff and students delivered workshops on both revision techniques and employability skills, which will help our students on their return to school.  Thank you to Sunderland University for giving the students such a worthwhile experience, which will help them to make important decisions when they leave Northfield.
