This Tuesday, a group of 26 Year 10 students visited the University of Brighton for a day of Creative Writing. They collaborated with the university’s own English students to produce a series of dramatic scenes and even had access to an actor who brought their work to fruition.
It was a fantastic chance for students to get a feel for Higher education and build confidence in their own work. Some quotes from pupils after the trip include:
“Really enjoyable, made me more interested in going to university.” – Megan
“Freed my imagination.” – Sayem
“The university students really helped us engage with the work.” – Lilliene
“I am definitely more confident in my writing now.” – Ruaridh
