In the first week of term a group of Year 13s had the opportunity to attend City University London. Over the 2 days they had the chance to see some of the sights of London including the Millennium Wheel, the Thames, the Tower of London, and The Shard. They even experienced walking across the famous Millennium Bridge and walked through the grounds of St Pauls Cathedral.
During their time at City University they were able to discover how living like a student might feel, with accommodation being the Local Halls of Residence at Liberty Court. The second day brought with it a tour of the impressive facilities at the Universities disposal. On the campus they had a fully equipped radio and television studio, as well as a large gym and sports centre especially for the students. The group I toured with were particularly impressed with the full equipped hospital ward just for teaching. The students thoroughly enjoyed the 2 days getting to hear the experiences of the student ambassadors, how student finance should not be a barrier to higher education.
Those they attended also received inside information on how to complete their personal statements. For more details on the trip and future events in Sixth Form make sure you follow us on twitter @KESH6thform.
