Keele Trip

Year 7 are involved in a project
which can span the next 5 years. The students are in the “AimHigher” programme and in the section called “Seeing is Believing”. The local authority wants to inspire all young people to use their talents and fulfill their potential. In particular it is keen to encourage young people who have no background of higher education in their family to consider this pathway as a real alternative post 18.
Therefore Maryhill Y7 have taken part in a 3 site trip to allow them to see first hand what goes on locally in terms of education. They visited Keele University(above picture), Newcastle College of Further Education and Port Vale in the Community scheme.They had different experiences at the venues and it is hoped that as the programme develops in subsequent years there will be further opportunities to explore higher education in our area
