Students in Years 11 and 12 in the Boys’ and Girls’ Divisions gained an insight into a host of specialist university courses and career options in a day arranged by the Careers Department. The two year groups could opt in to any number of sessions, which were running throughout the day. Visiting university lecturers and course leaders talked about the degrees on offer and the careers they might lead to.
