Year 10 UCAS Trip
Year 10 students visited the UCAS Discovery Exhibition at the NEC in Birmingham.
Whilst many of their classmates were snoozing in bed on the recent INSET day, 7 of our Year 10 student visited the UCAS Discovery Exhibition at the NEC in Birmingham. The conference boasts over 100 unis, colleges, and apprenticeship employers. The purpose of the trip was to allow our KS4 students to start thinking about different options and career pathways available to them after they finish Sixth-Form or College. From subject talks to robot dogs, our students enjoyed a packed 2 hours visiting the exhibitors. They returned to the mini-bus laden down with free swag (the recyclable sunglasses were a real hit)!
It was a joy to hear the students enthusing over the amazing courses that they themselves could be applying for in a few years. Indeed, the atmosphere in the Arena was a joy to witness, as thousands of young people were looking to decide their next steps in life. We are already planning next year's event and are hoping to widen it out to more students, in order to raise their aspirations and see the amazing opportunities for them in Tertiary Education.
