Last term saw our annual Careers and University Day with a mixture of plenary sessions by Nottingham, Newcastle and Lancaster universities on student finance and tips for choosing and making successful applications to competitive universities.
We are grateful to alumni at various stages in prestigious careers who joined parents and local colleagues online to provide 75+ virtual breakout sessions throughout the packed programme. These enabled students to discuss both degree and career aspirations from alternative perspectives whilst also understanding more about the decision making process that we all face during change and moving forward.
An evening parent and university ‘question and answer’ panel session addressed concerns facing students currently in their applications and allowed us to further dissect how universities, parents and the school can mutually support students in the sometimes daunting university admissions process.
