The new year 10 students have set off today for Harper Adams University in Shropshire where they’ll spend the next five days getting to know their fellow students and staff. They’ll also get their first engineering project, the Harper Adams Challenge.
Day one consists of a nice and easy day; leaving the academy by coach at around 9am, arriving at Harper Adams at approximately 10am, then followed by registration and a welcome by the Harper Adams staff at 11:30am. The students will then spend an hour getting familiarised with their surroundings with the rest of the afternoon having PSHE (Personal, social, health and economic) lessons. Students will break for the evening at around 4pm. A quick refresh, change out of their uniforms for their evening meal and some social time. Lights out at 10am.
