Greater Manchester Offer

As part of the GM Offer, a group of 60 Year 8 Siddal Moor students visited the University of Salford on Monday 23rd January to sample a day in Higher Education. After a tour of the campus the students took part in a fact finding workshop followed by a student production about career options.
In November 2016 another group of Year 8 students took part in a visit to the University of Bolton and the remaining students from this year group will visit the University of Liverpool in June, the visit will focus on Chemistry, Physics and Environmental Sciences.
Alongside the delivery of our CEIAG programme visits like these are working to raise the aspirations of this year group, inspire the students about life after Siddal Moor, and raise the importance of picking their GCSE options in Year 9.
