A group of 20 students from Y9 and Y10 have been selected to be part of the US in Schools programme, led by Sheffield University. This will involve them having a weekly session with their University Mentor in school throughout this year. Students have been selected based on their academic success, with them all having grades that show they are capable of attending university in the future. Throughout the year, the programme will enable them to understand the opportunities available to them in later life and break any misconceptions they have about whether they can attend university.
Part of the programme involved attended a mentoring day at Sheffield University, where they took part in various challenges, winning prizes for most creative ideas, and were shown around by their University Mentors in order to get an insight into University life in Sheffield. A great day was had by all; our students were a credit to Clifton and their families. Well done Mentees of 2017/18 – keep up the excellent attitude to learning and you will go far!
