Pupils up their game at university taster day

Published on 12/06/19

Pupils at The Hewett Academy reached for new heights in a sports and arts taster day introducing them to university life.

The Game Changers event at the University of East Anglia saw the Year 7 boys using the Sportspark’s first-class facilities to try their hand at climbing and fencing.

The sporting sessions were followed by a university-style seminar on Venetian art, and a session with UEA’s student ambassadors exploring life in higher education.

The event was aimed at giving boys the opportunity to try new activities and demystifying the process of applying for and going to university.

PE teacher Danny Self said: “A great day was had by all the boys, who were a credit to themselves and the Hewett.”
