Tuesday 5 July was a special day for Year 10. For the first time ever they attended a tailor-made AimHigher event encouraging them to think seriously about further and higher education. Every pupil attended for half a day, with sessions being run by AimHigher graduate mentors and advocates as well as Birkenhead Sixth Form College, Wirral Metropolitan College and a motivational speaker from MindSounds. Our visitors were impressed with the mature attitude of the pupils and feedback from the pupils themselves was also extremely positive with comments such as ‘Great. It gave me the chance to think about what I might want to do in the future. I need to work really hard next year to make sure I can get on the courses I want’. Thanks go to Ben Toleman from AimHigher for organising the day.
