Wycliffe’s First Futures Fair

October 3, 2016 1:03 pm

Our very first Futures Event at Wycliffe took place on Wednesday 28th September. The day was devoted to giving all our pupils a chance to consider a range of options for when they leave compulsory education at the age of 18, with direct access to providers of further and higher education and apprenticeships. We have gathered representatives of top UK, US, European, Australian, New Zealand and Canadian universities, as well as significant employers. Visiting in Year groups, each pupil had the chance to peruse the exhibits and also hear from them in short introductory talks throughout the day. A special session ran exclusively for Wycliffe parents and guardians, starting with five minute presentations covering each of UK Universities, US Universities and Apprenticeships.
