What can we offer?
Aspire to HE has for many pupils at Wood Green Academy broadened their horizons. The initiative has enabled students to attend relevant Open Days, exciting faculty projects, listen to inspiring guest speakers and have expert mentoring. This has given students a strong insight into higher education opportunities and career pathways, and created a stronger desire to follow them.
Wood Green Academy
One Charlton School Alumni stated that because of Aspire to HE, she ‘changed her mind-set and goals’ in secondary school, so that she could be the first person in her family to go onto university. It is testament to our partnership with Aspire that has potentially changed the lives of some of our students.
Students have been taking part in numerous educational visits to museums, sporting events, STEM lectures, motivational workshops, university visits, and summer schools. We have also been lucky to have an Aspire to HE Engagement Officer in two of our schools, and through their mentoring our students have had support in looking at their own aspirations and future plans.
