This week, 14 of our Year 9 students, who applied and were successful for this year’s Scholar’s Programme, had the chance to visit the University of Manchester!! They spent the day experiencing what being a student is like, spending the day in a lecture theatre and completing a ‘Study Skills’ session. This session included learning about critical thinking and finding credible sources to use in when constructing an argument for an essay.

They then had a campus tour from a university student ambassador which involved visiting the very new Engineering lecture theatre. Students were amazed by the size of the lecture theatre and wanted a chance to sit at the top! They then got the chance to then ask a range of questions about university life and learn about different routes into university including BTECS, T-Levels and A-levels. They really enjoyed visiting the university and are now looking forward to beginning the Scholar’s Programme with their PHD Tutor in February!

Thank you year 9 for making us proud!
