Realising Opportunities Update

Realising Opportunities Update – As part of our Realising Opportunities scheme, organised by our host university, the University of Sussex, our students have already been exposed to a wide range of advice and support for getting prepared for university life.

All students should be in contact with their e-mentor via the Brightside website, and should have already completed the ‘Skills 4 Uni’ module via the RO student portal.

The Academic Assignment – Save the dates!

Day 1 – Tuesday 19 June 2018

Day 2 – Wednesday 27 June 2018

Day 3 – Monday 09 July 2018

On each of the three days, students will depart the academy by coach at 9:30am, complete their day at the University of Sussex, Falmer Campus, and arrive back at the academy at 3pm.

There is no cost to students attending these 3 sessions, and lunch will be provided by the university. RO Students in Year 12 should have completed a reply slip for these events.

Follow us on social media for more updates during the days!

National Student Conference

As part of the Realising Opportunities (RO) programme, a selection of our Year 12 students will be attending the National Student Conference 2018, held at the University of Exeter.

Mrs Morley and the Year 12 students will be leaving the academy before Friday lunchtime, and staying overnight at a Hilton hotel in Bristol – with an evening quiz and dinner organised! After breakfast in the hotel, on Saturday we will make the journey to the University of Exeter for the conference.

We will arrive back at the academy late Saturday evening by coach, where students will be dismissed.

We look forward to visiting Exeter, and proceeding further in the Realising Opportunities programme.
