Newcastle comes to Willenhall

Wednesday 27th September saw over a hundred students welcome Ambassadors from the University of Newcastle to Pool Hayes. Students from y7,8,9 10 and 13 took part in a variety of workshops aimed at raising their awareness of Higher Education in a fun interactive way. Students looked at the importance of budgeting and prioritising what they may want or need to take to university. They looked at the importance of getting good grades right from GCSE through to A Levels and BTECS and how the right subjects and grades are needed to get onto the right course for their career choice. Our older students took part in a quiz testing their knowledge of the different degrees available and also guessing what famous celebrities had chosen to do their degree in. Our Y13 students got advice on how to write the perfect personal statement as they now start their UCAS journey.
