Raising aspirations

This month we’ve been particularly focussed on pathways and showcasing the potential opportunities our students could have in the future. 


We visited the University of Leeds for two conference days for Raised in Yorkshire, a partnership for our aspirant Medic and Dentists.

This year-long, real-world research project enables our young people to experience a critical part of higher level study in these competitive courses as well as addressing how looking after healthy teeth is related to good school attendance for our Year 7 cohort. We're looking forward to seeing bright smiles as they start the education mentoring phase!

We also had the pleasure of taking 51 of our Year 12s to the University of Sheffield, and 38 students to Newcastle University to experience a selection of our closest Russell Group Universities. This work will continue in the Summer Term with Year 12 collaborating with Newcastle University on Unifrog and beginning the UCAS process.

Students had the opportunity to discuss student living, finances, course choices with undergraduate ambassadors, as well as meeting teaching staff in a range of disciplines.
