Successful trip to Coventry Uni for Year 10 students
This trip was a fantastic opportunity for students to gain experience of university life and explore their own career pathways. During the day the students were involved in workshops around student life, a campus tour including a look at the student residency and meeting current university students whereby an opportunity to ask questions was given.
The students thoroughly enjoyed the day and have started to think about what their next step is.
