In previous years, we have run a successful Year 9 residential. The event was aimed at allowing them to spend time at a university and explore their options for the future.
For the last event we arranged some fantastic guests to challenge the students and support them in exploring their options for the future.
We also ran some interactive workshops facilitated by Oxford Brookes academics including: Music, English, Art, Sport, Computer programming/animation and more. There was a Friday night excursion to entertain the students in the evening and they spent the night in University accommodation.
On the Saturday, as well as delivering an action packed day for the students we also invited their parents and siblings to the event. There was a parent specific talk and a joint activity with both students and parents taking part.
