University and Gap Year Fair, Friday 15th February 2019, 1.00pm - 4.00pm in the Alington Hall
We look forward to welcoming 45 universities and 10 Gap Year providers to the School next Friday. All pupils and their families are welcome to attend, though the Fair is targeted mainly at parents and pupils in the Fifth and Sixth Forms.
The Fair will take place in the Alington Hall, where representatives from universities the length and breadth of the country will be on hand to answer any questions and offer an insight into the courses and life at their various institutions. In addition, we will offer four presentations in the Ashton Theatre (on a first come, first served basis) on topics including student finance and personal statements.
This event is free and there is no need to book. Further details can be found under 'Forthcoming Events' below.
