Year 9 - University Insight Day
On Tuesday 24th May GROWS sponsored 50 x Year 9s to visit the University of Gloucestershire's Oxstalls campus for an Insight to University Day. Students found out more about the benefits of higher education, why they may want to consider this as an option when they reach 18 and the different educational routes to get there. Year 9s also had a tour of the campus to familiarise themselves with the Oxstalls campus including a tour of their mock-up hospital suit and mock-up Magistrate's Court. Students also got to taste what it was like to sit in a university lecture hall and had fun designing what their dream university would look like (The Gloucestershire University of Cheesemaking was the most imaginative).
