Key Stage 3

‘Aim High!’, our Key Stage 3 event, is free to attend and has been developed for students in years 7 and 8. We know how well positioned teachers are to spot potential and, by inviting them to bring their students along to the university campus for a ‘day in the life’, we’re able to offer exactly the inspiration and information they’re looking for.

The whole day is designed to help students look to the best version of their future: to envisage a life at university and all the possibilities that come as part of the package. By having this realistic, immersive taste of a university future, students are far more likely to apply themselves in school. After all, we all need something tangible to work towards.
