Humanities Day at the University of Sussex

On Friday, a group of our Year 9 students visited the University of Sussex and spent the day studying the local impact of World War 1 as part of their “Making Choices” programme. Pupils looked at how various Brighton landmarks were used, recognised the human cost of war and learned what it was like living in a seaside town under the very real threat of invasion.

Making Choices is a programme run by the University of Sussex that aims to familiarise Year 9 students with a university environment. Through taster sessions in three different subjects, pupils are introduced to new styles of learning and encouraged to aspire to higher education.
