We have strong ties with Staffordshire University and they are keen to ensure that local students are made aware of all the opportunities afforded to students who go onto university and gain a university degree.

The ‘Great Minds’ Bus dropped in to raise awareness, map out what needed to be done in school to progress towards university, and provide a Virtual Reality experience through headsets of what it was like to be at university.

Carrie Cain, Assistant Headteacher, said: “The visit was scheduled in as part of our regular Raising Aspirations events and flagged up the possibilities open to hard-working and successful students. The visit built on the apprenticeship visits, mock job interviews and careers advice session which have been running throughout the term.”
