Year 9 trip to Durham University

On Monday, fifteen Year 9 students enjoyed a taster day at Durham University.

Our students experienced a flavour of academic life at Durham. They participated in many activities and seminars including: how to manage their finances while studying, information regarding student accommodation and the numerous courses which can be studied at Durham.

They also received interesting information on the clubs and societies which were available. They found out about playing Quidditch on Palace Green and the exploits of the Harry Potter Society which they found very interesting.

The Durham student ambassadors hosted a tour of Collingwood College. Our students asked questions about the application process and entry requirements to Durham and how the students cope with the demands of living away from home.

A very enjoyable day.

Thank you
