Wednesday 30 April, Metro Radio Arena
This is a very important event for all students considering applying to higher education. Over 100 universities and colleges will be exhibiting at the convention. Representatives from student grant departments and other student organisations will also be present.
The convention therefore provides students with an excellent opportunity to research their higher education options through asking questions of university and college representatives, gathering prospectuses and other relevant information.
UCAS, the university admissions services, has a useful video guide on their website on how students can prepare for and get the most out of the Convention.
We have arranged transport from school to Newcastle Metro Arena and back on that afternoon. Buses will leave at 12.35 prompt from Whetstone Bridge Road and return by 3.10. Periods 4 and 5 will be cancelled for all Year 12 students.
Whilst we are aware the higher education is not the best or most appropriate option for every student, it is an option that all students should at least be considering.
We are asking for a contribution of £3 per head to cover the cost of transport.
