University of Sheffield Trips

Year 7 University of Sheffield Trip (8th May 2018)

In early May, 81 of our Year 7 students went to the University of Sheffield for a Discovery Day and campus tour with ambassadors from the further education facility.

The students, who behaved exceptionally on the trip, saw the university’s first ever building (below), as well as the Students’ Union, the tallest academic building in Britain, and one of just two remaining paternoster lifts in the UK.

Year 9 University of Sheffield Trip (3rd May 2018)

A large group of Year 9 students also attended a Discovery Day at the University of Sheffield on the first Thursday in May.

Taking part in activities and a campus tour, the morning was enjoyed by all involved as they begin to think of their options post-Wingfield.

Students took part in a ‘True or False’ university course quiz (below), went on a guided tour and got to see the social aspect university can offer.

Only three of these courses don't exist at universities across the UK. Can you work out which ones?
