On Friday 5th April students from Exeter University visited Mounts Bay Academy to run a workshop with Year 9 scholars students. The aim of the programme is to educate Year 9 students about university life and support them into higher education. Students will then go on to graduate as a scholar in Year 11.
Finding out about university life will involve current university students coming in and running a variety of sessions at MBA including a question and answer session as well as other activities including team building and ‘discovering something new’.
Everyone who was selected to be part of the prestigious and insightful scholars programme thoroughly enjoyed the workshop and enjoyed learning something new. Thank you to Exeter University for organising this event!
This is just one of three workshops so keep an eye out for more in the future.
