On the 12th November, our academically more able Year 9 students had the opportunity to go the University of Southampton for an exciting day of masterclasses. The day kicked off with the ‘Discover a New World’ seminar with the school students. This was followed by a 'Mapping Your Future' session with Southampton Hubs and Alumni team, then it was down to business!
Students worked in groups with a student ambassador to design an app to help them decide which career is right for them. They then had five minutes to present their ideas to “The Dragons” describing the app and explain decisions around the design and its functionality. The students had a fantastic day and represented the academy exceptionally. Thank you, UoS for hosting us.
