Over thirty students from Writhlington School were invited to attend University of Bath’s “Futures Day”.
Every year, University of Bath invites students from secondary schools across the country to give them information, advice, guidance and an insight about where their Key Stage 4 options can lead and the variety of exciting pathways ahead.
Students tooks part in a variety of different workshops; encouraging students to look at their personality traits, skills, strengths and interests. Students were able to match jobs and courses that complimented their interests and aspirations.
Year 9 student Casper Bruhn-Parry said:
“I learned a lot about university, I wasn’t sure if I wanted to go but now I know about all the different courses you can do so am keeping an open mind. It has made picking my GCSEs a little bit easier, I have still picked lessons I am interested in but also know which ones will help me in the future if I do decide to go to Uni”.
Assistant Progress Leader Year 9 And 10, Natasha Fear said:
‘This was a really fantastic opportunity for our students and they worked incredibly hard throughout the day. There were people from all educational backgrounds offering advice and guidance and our students came away with a much more informed idea of what they might like to do, study and the incredible opportunities available to them.’
