Through our School Engagement Programme, we offer a ‘menu of opportunities’ to all secondary schools across Bradford. One such opportunity was to work with the University of Hull on a project to raise aspiration amongst Year 8, 9 and 10 students. Carlton Bolling School took us up on the offer. Below is what Lindsay Wilson, Assistant Headteacher at Carlton Bolling, has to say about the project.
New College Bradford introduced Carlton Bolling to University of Hull to be part of the Sparks Programme. The programme is amazing. It involves 30 of our highest achieving students working with University of Hull over their school life. These activities include, university and study-based activities, a university visitor (for the whole of Year 9), debate mate sessions and this year they also offered the school a residential for Y10. We have also been offered a day session this year with Adam Corbally (from the Apprentice) who will run an enterprise event for the 30 students on Y8 and Y9 and also another residential for Y10.
The link New College Bradford created for us through your School Engagement ‘Menu of Opportunities’ with University of Hull has been amazing and we thank you very much for this.
