Raising Aspirations Programme

A group of Year 9 boys recently visited Northumbria University as part of the Raising Aspirations Kick Off Event. The Raising Aspirations programme is designed to use sport to help students aim higher in all aspects of school life. The two sports they took part in were rugby league and boxing.

The boys who attended were a credit to themselves and the school and came away from the day much better informed about the choices and avenues available to them to access university. They will take part in three further sessions to promote different university courses with sporting links.
