Learning about University life!
Last week we had a number of students out of school and at City University learning about university life. The university have praised our Year 9s for their efforts during this time. However, they took the time to email me specifically about one student, Bradley Williams (9G). Bradley really stood out to them and was awarded their ‘Star Student’ Award of Amazon vouchers. They reported that Bradley was a cheeky chappy that worked hard throughout the week and regularly volunteered his ideas to the group. The university ambassadors really enjoyed watching him develop throughout the week and left him with one piece of advice, to try to make the right decisions.
I cannot express how proud I am of Bradley and all of the other students who attended. What a wonderful show of our values in Year 9.
Work Hard. Be Nice. Take Opportunities.

City University Taster Week 2019
I always used to say to myself “I don’t want to go to university” or “university is not where I see myself in the next few years”. But, ever since I signed up to the taster week at City University London it has opened my eyes up a lot about university and what it is all about. The taster week was amazing, we did so many activities there throughout the week. On Monday we had a tour around campus to see all the departments and the cafeteria, on Tuesday we learnt about all the different types of psychology, Wednesday led us to the Crown Prosecution Service in London for the day and on Thursday we learnt a little bit about social science before we went on a lunch trip to Pizza Express. Finally, on Friday we had our graduation day, on this day we were given certificates and we had our photos taken with the student ambassadors.
I had such a great time at the taster week and I was so proud of myself for signing up for this taster week because it was the best week of my life. Going to this taster week has really changed the way I think about university and what opportunities are lined up ready for me to grab them. I do definitely think that I will be going to university when I finish school and Sixth Form.
