On Tuesday 24th January 2017, 26 year 10 students spent the day at Loughborough University for a challenge day. They were accompanied by Mr D Padam, Head of Careers and Mrs S Mansoor, Assistant YAC. This was a full day of activities on campus, that looked at building teamwork, communication, resilience and time keeping skills! It gave the students an insight as to the soft skills needed to thrive at University.
Mr Padam said “It was good to see our students doing very well in some of the tasks and making the most of the experience to learn more about university life.”
A student that attended said “The best part of the day was teaming up with students I usually don’t talk to, and also getting to know the students at the university.”
