On 1 May, 29 of our Year 7 students visited the University of York as part of the Shine programme. The University of York Shine Programme supports students from schools across Yorkshire, the Humber and the North East to reach their full potential. The programme aims to inspire, motivate and encourage students to achieve academic success and raise their aspirations towards higher education. At Woodfields we have 110 students in Years 7-11 participate in Shine.
Year 7 students on their visit took part in a range of activities and experiences to learn more about higher education and the University itself. In the morning students completed group activities about progression to higher education and went on a tour of the campus. In the afternoon students completed other activities about researching universities and writing personal statements.
