Nottingham Trent University Day
Beaumont Leys School hosted a special morning for 30 year 8 students from Beaumont Leys and 30 Year 7 students from the Samworth Enterprise Academy on Wednesday 8th May 2013.
Lecturers and Students from Nottingham Trent University (NTU) came into our school for the morning and the students participated in activities designed to gain a better understanding of what University life is like and to also promote working as part of a team. The students from both schools behaved impeccably and were a credit to their Year Groups and respective schools.
The staff from NTU had this to say about the visit:-
‘To work at Beaumont Leys School jointly with Samworth Enterprise Academy was a first for us. Meeting 60 pupils over 4 sessions really made sure the pupils understood how achievable University can really be. Pete, Gemma, Marc and Rhianna delivered a classroom session rotating round three ‘Uni’ activities and Esther and Ayshia delivered a post graduate taster session on board design. Pete said “it was a great opportunity to work with Leicester schools. The pupils engaged so well with our sessions and they were a real credit to their schools. We hope they all increased their awareness of University in a positive way and that they understand it’s a real choice for the future, irrespective of their background and academic ability”. Our message is simply work hard and you can do it, it really is life changing!’
