On Wednesday 26th May a group of year 10 students attended a number of workshops at Liverpool Hope University organised on behalf of Aimhigher Greater Merseyside to enable young people to become more aware of future opportunities.
Sessions were very varied and interactive. For example some students attended a Brain Gym workshop which involved learning exercises to improve brain power, help concentration and memory. The practitioner delivering the workshop highlighted research and trials that have found doing Brain Gym before homework could reduce the amount of time taken by half and improve exam scores by up to 10%
There were 20 sessions on offer, from which students selected four to attend. Options included:-
- Gap Year
- Ur Future
- Subject Choice at University
- Creative Computing: Animation
It was a well organised day with positive feedback from the students.
