A group of Year 10 pupils have been taking part in a 10 week mentoring programme with a former Sharples School pupil, who is currently attending Manchester Metropolitan University. Sumayya Patel has been working with the group in school each Wednesday, offering them an insight into university life and options regarding various pathways. The pupils have engaged well with Sumayya and she complimented their enthusiasm and excellent behaviour. As a bonus, all 6 pupils have been invited to attend a Summer School at the University just before we break up for the Summer holidays. Shauna Crossley, Amy Smith, Lucy Patterson, Jack Edge, Bryce Gormley and Lewis Hilton will be staying over at the halls of residence and experiencing social activities at the University!
We hope they enjoy this fantastic opportunity...Well done!
