A Taste of Student Life
Every year, the University of Liverpool opens its doors to Year 10 students. The aim is for them to have a real taste of university life, during a three day residential experience. This year, thirteen of our HAPs have been involved!
Our Year 10s experienced lectures; interactive workshops; informative talks on the more serious side of university life and not forgetting the final night social event...the disco!
On return to school, equipped with their university goodie bags, the students were so enthusiastic about their time at uni! They have all made friends with students from other schools - if other years are anything to go by, I'm sure they will be keeping in touch! Most importantly, many of our students now feel more determined than ever to reach this destination: ambition that will surely help them to focus throughout their GCSEs and beyond.
We thank The University of Liverpool's Widening Participation unit for giving our students this opportunity and look forward to next year (our Year 9 HAPs are already asking about it!).
