Aim Higher in Liverpool

Students took part in a fun Applied Theatre workshop.

A group of Year 11 students have recently returned from a residential visit to Liverpool as part of our Aim Higher programme.

The programme sees groups of students travel to a variety of UK cities to visit Universities and experience student life at a much higher level. This taste of independence and the opportunity to find out about the many degree courses on offer is extremely inspiring for our students.

On this particular trip, the group of 12 students visited the Liverpool Institute of Performing Arts (LIPA) which is famous for the quality of its higher education in Drama and Performing Arts. Students enjoyed a tour of the campus to view the University facilities, and also took part in an Applied Theatre workshop.

The group also visited the Liverpool Museum and had the opportunity to explore a little of the bustling city centre, which may become home should they choose to study there.
