'Learn with Us' at Southampton University

This week fifteen Year 9 students visited the University of Southampton as part of the 'Learn with Us' programme.

The day was split into two different activities; in the morning, a careers conference focused on the skills and support available to students and how highlighting personal achievements can help with applications for higher education. The afternoon tasked students with a Dragon's Den-style challenge where they had to create and design an app that would be for Year 9 students to find information about career pathways and higher education.

The students were outstanding and had only one hour to work as part of a team to discuss, design and present their ideas. It was a close competition as all schools had created good ideas, however, Crookhorn students came through to win by really impressing the judges with their ideas, teamwork and strong presentation. 

Well done to the fifteen Year 9 students that represented the College today.
