Pupils up their game at university taster day

Published on 12/06/19

Pupils at Thetford Academy reached for new heights in a taster day introducing them to university life.

The Game Changers event at the University of East Anglia saw the Year 7 boys using the Sportspark’s first-class facilities to try their hand at climbing and fencing.

The sporting sessions were followed by a university-style seminar on nutrition, and a session with UEA’s student ambassadors exploring life in higher education.

The event was aimed at giving boys the opportunity to try new activities and demystifying the process of applying for and going to university.

PE teacher Jonny Phipps said: “This was a really successful day and definitely promoted higher education to our pupils.”
