Discover US Introduction Day

Groups of Y9 & Y10 students recently attended The University of Sheffield to research student life and have a tour of the campus buildings. Last week Y10 took part in the US in Schools programme where they investigated courses available at degree level and visited lecture theatres and buildings including the impressive Sport Sheffield, where elite athletes also train. They were shown around by their Student Mentors, who visit them in school every week to support them in their journey towards attending university. This week saw Y9 students on the Discover US programme take part in their first activity day of their 3 year project where they joined pupils from many schools across South Yorkshire to learn about university in general and take part in activities to help build confidence and other skills needed in later life. Well done to all students for their strong contribution and excellent conduct during their visits.
