Y10 Gateways

Thursday, 19 September 2019

On Thursday, 19 September 2019, a group of Year 10 students undertook the Gateways visit to the University of Manchester.  Our school was joined by two other schools from Greater Manchester.

The Year 10 Exploration Visit was an opportunity for learners to realistically consider their future options, own identity and their preferences, skills and strengths. A ‘Researching Your Future Options’ workshop gave students an introduction to the research process, through thinking about their own options at age 14-16 by exploring progression routes into careers and courses they are interested in.

During the afternoon, learners were given the opportunity to work in groups and create a political Campaign to become the Heads of the Student Union. The students thoroughly enjoyed this opportunity, with one of our students, Rhea, particularly impressing the University Ambassadors with her Student Safety App design that helped track students at the University. 

At the end of the day, students took part in a Q&A session with current undergraduates to find out more about university life.  Everyone thoroughly enjoyed their visit, with one student commenting “It’s been such fun today and I’ve learnt so much. The day just seemed to pass so quickly”.
