They were also given the opportunity to attend a University Lecture, the choices being the’ Physics of Ice Cream’ or ‘Social Policy- Understanding Drugs Policy’. Students were able to gather information regarding University life in general as well as specific support.
Today marks the launch of our University Open Day Blog. There are plenty of wonderful resources out there for you to find out about universities however we thought, who better to find out about universities than your peers?
For many of us, a huge part of Sixth Form is preparing for university. For this we often visit universities on Open Days throughout the year. There’s no way that someone could possibly visit every university so we want to hear about your experience.
Let us know what you thought of the Open Day you went on, what impressed you about the university and if it lived up to your expectations. We want to hear your personal views about the university, tell us what you’d tell your friends.
The template for the blog posts is found below and a physical copy can be picked up from Mrs Pells. Once you have filled in the form simply hand it in to Mrs Pells or email ‘email@example.com’.

“edukid” is a UK charity that enables young people in the UK to directly help people their own age who live in acute poverty.
In June two Sixth Form pupils (Jenny March and Alice Allin) travelled to Cambodia and visited an edukid project.
They will be taking assemblies this week telling people about the children they met.
On Friday there will be a fun fund raiser to help these children.
Pupils can buy glow in the dark wristbands for just £1.
Each one sold will enable a child in Cambodia to go to school for a whole week!
You can also buy edukid ribbons to raise awareness for children who live in poverty.
These are only 50p.
At Friday lunchtime there is going to be a sponsored 300 mile walk across Cambodia in half an hour!
We need 300 people to walk 1 mile and get sponsorship. 300 miles is the width of Cambodia.
Children in Cambodia go to school in flip-flops so you are invited to bring your flip-flops for the event.
It costs just 17p to send a child in Cambodia to school for 1 day.
For every child edukid can provide a full education for their life expectancy increases by 7 years! – so please help.
Every penny really does count.
We want to change the lives of 30 Cambodian children on Friday! HELP US DO IT!
