On 2nd February 2017, Year 9 students were invited to Kingston University, South London, to experience student life there. At the University, they did many activities with other schools: games using transferrable skills like communication, a personality test, discussions about career options and an interview with University students and staff. This informative visit helped them think about choosing the right options for GCSEs and how that will shape their future.
