Last term, a selection of KS3 students enjoyed a Newcastle University taster day. The aim of this day was to provide participating students with a variety of information about higher education and student life.

This one day event focused on the opportunities that are available while studying at university. Through a variety of interactive sessions, our students gained lots of knowledge about the benefits of higher education. They worked with current undergraduates to gain an invaluable insight into university life.

The programme included a short tour of Newcastle University’s main campus and facilities. This allowed the attending students to have their questions answered by staff and students alike.

Newcastle Student Ambassadors (current Newcastle University students) were on hand to support our students throughout their visit and encouraged them to ask questions and participate in a variety of workshops.

A big thank you to Mr. Nesbitt, Mrs. Robertson and Mr. Barnes who accompanied the students on the trip.

Thank you

Mrs. Bell
