A group of year nine pupils recently attended a visit to Edge Hill University for their ‘Aspire to Higher Education’ day.
Pupils took part in a university budgeting class in which they were set the challenge of managing their own finances and a question and answer session with current students to find out more about life at the university.
Pupils were also treated to a tour of the Edge Hill campus which included the library and study areas, a visit to the state of the art sports complex, and a look at the accommodation available to students studying at the university. The tour was delivered by current student advocates who were able to answer questions regarding student life.
The year nine pupils were also provided with a lunch courtesy of Edge Hill in their student dining area in which to provide an authentic feel to their day at university.
