Open Day Season
On Friday 28th June, as part of our summer term enrichment programme, we took our year 12 students to the University of Northampton Open Day, to experience life as a potential undergraduate.
The new Waterside Campus in Northampton was very impressive, with state of the art buildings, set in beautiful landscaped areas alongside the River Nene. Whilst there we were able to learn about the courses on offer, speak to current student ambassadors and view the learning facilities.
A particular highlight enjoyed by all students was the opportunity to see the different Halls of Residence. This included townhouses and flats, all set in a student village. Our year 12s were impressed by the spacious bedrooms, communal living and kitchen areas and the proximity to Subway and Costa!
By the time we left, many students were commenting on how surprised they were that their local university had so much to offer them. It certainly has given them plenty to think about when choosing their five universities and was a great first university to see as Open Day season kicks off.
