Last week we took a group of Y8 and Y9 students to Sheffield University. It was a anii visit to complete a programme of Higher education activities they have taken part in this year with HEPP.
Students took part in a workshop about who Higher Education is for and dispelling myths about HE. They then had a grand tour of the main uni buildings taking in the stunning Firth Court, state of the art Diamond building and newly renovated Frederick Mappin building with its stunning glass atrium. They also go to visit the famous Paternoster lift in the arts tower although they were too young to ride on it.
The students were really impressed with the facilities and some wanted to start there tomorrow. They were brilliant all day and demonstrated the Clifton Way throughout.
