University of Nottingham 'ambitions' visit

26th April 2017

Ambitions event - April 2017As part of our drive to raise the aspirations of our students, on Friday 21 April a group of year 7 students took part in a workshop with staff from the University of Nottingham. The purpose of the session was for these students to focus on their ambitions for the future, together with giving them a glimpse at what university life is all about.

As part of the workshop, students completed an activity that focused on their hopes for the next 2 years, 10 years and 20 years’ time. They also took part in a drama session that helped them to understand the various expects of university life including courses on offer, societies, extracurricular activities and opportunities to study abroad.

The group were also treated to a tour of the campus (without leaving their seats)! The students were shown a video tour, enabling them to see some of the amazing facilities – the plan for next year is for students to visit the campus.

Finally, students were given the opportunity to ask questions to current university students about their courses, their university experience and how they have developed throughout their education.

We would like to express our thanks to the University of Nottingham team and students for their time and sharing their story with our students.
