Pupils get sneak peek at univer­sity

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - SCHOOL REPORT -

YOUNG stu­dents were given a glimpse of univer­sity ed­u­ca­tion at a visit to Ox­ford Brookes Univer­sity.

Year seven stu­dents from Chalfonts Com­mu­nity Col­lege, in Chal­font St Peter, toured the univer­sity’s cam­pus, in­clud­ing the halls of res­i­dence, sports fa­cil­i­ties, the stu­dent union build­ing, li­brary and study ar­eas.

The two groups of 60 stu­dents par­tic­i­pated in a range of ac­tiv­i­ties fo­cused on in­de­pen­dent learn­ing.

Prin­ci­pal Cather­ine Davies said: “We are fully com­mit­ted to en­sur­ing that ev­ery stu­dent has the best ed­u­ca­tion to en­able them to se­lect a univer­sity ed­u­ca­tion if that is their choice.

“Re­gard­less of their start­ing point, we are highly aspi­ra­tional for all young peo­ple and we will strive con­tin­u­ously to raise our stu­dents’ self-belief to pro­duce fully rounded, highly ca­pa­ble and im­pres­sive cit­i­zens of the fu­ture.”
