All Year 12 students enjoyed an action-packed visit to the Royal Borough of Greenwich for a range of educational activities to support their ongoing university and apprenticeship applications. Students took part in the UCAS Conference, where they had an opportunity to meet representatives from over 100 different universities from across the country.

A range of seminars was also available, ranging from information regarding Gap Years, to building portfolios for Arts based degrees, to medical applications. After a spot of lunch in the historic town centre overlooking the Cutty Sark, students visited the National Maritime Museum, exploring galleries on “International Trade” and “The Atlantic and Slavery”. We then walked to the Royal Observatory to not only visit the location where GMT is measured, but also to enjoy the panoramic views of the London skyline.
