Graduating From University Week
Uni Week 2017 was a huge success, involving students from all year groups but with a key focus on Year 7. Staff and students from Newcastle-under-Lyme College's Honours Programme (a programme for high-potential students) visited to engage in some inspiring activities with Delta 3 students, encouraging them to think of themselves on a developmental journey.
Delta 3 students also visited Chester University for a taste of university life, helping them to understand the courses available and skills and qualities needed to succeed at university. The week ended with a full day of university-themed activities for the whole of Year 7 in which students researched courses, wrote their own personal statements and went on a university scavenger hunt. The students were visited by Keele University who arranged an interactive myth-busting session to help students understand that university is possible and affordable.
The finale of the day was a graduation, in which students wore real university gowns to receive their degrees!
