‘It’s been a very motivational experience. Many of my pupils were already thinking about coming to university but had no idea what to expect. This experience has made them realise exactly what university life is like and the variety of courses on offer. I think the opportunity to stay in the student halls has been amazing as the majority of pupils had no idea what to expect!’ Year 9 Residential
