#WideningAccessDerby

Our Year 7-11 Looked After Children Experience Day provides students the opportunity to visit the University with their carer or member of school staff and take part in a range of interactive taster sessions. On the day students will find out more about the additional support available for them at university and meet current students. 

Stress rams on a table.

A superb opportunity for LAC youngsters to raise their aspirations.
