Earlier this month our whole year 12 group attended a special university preparation day at the University of Nottingham.

The day consisted of our students gathering a wealth of information, taking part in interactive learning sessions and finding out about uni life by quizzing current and former students.

The HSFC students enjoyed lectures on personal statements and applications for UCAS, a tour of campus facilities and accommodation blocks, information on student finance and general advice on living and learning in higher education. We even had a go at the gameshow Pointless: Universities Edition!

It was a great opportunity for our students to get a taste of just one of the many higher education options that they may be considering in just a little over a year from now.
