On Thursday 22 April, 28 Year 8 students took part in a session run by Into University. The session focused on providing students with different methods to recall information, as well as a range of revision techniques and memory games, giving them valuable skills to use as they progress into KS4 and begin studying GCSE courses. All the students who were involved approached the sessions with an overwhelming sense of respect and responsibility, and it was great to see the active participation by everyone to learn the Japanese numbers from 1 – 10.

Special recognition went to James Anderson for his outstanding efforts and contribution, but the most heart-warming moment was the Retribuam shown by Kwadwo Sarpong, who nominated Benny Asante to receive his prize to recognise the effort he had made during the sessions. We look forward to welcoming Into University for more sessions in the future.

“I just wanted to say thanks to you and all of the other school staff who helped us get in and deliver to Year 7 and Year 8 last week, especially at short notice.

It’s been months since we have been able to deliver in person at any schools, and we couldn’t have hoped for two better groups to deliver with – the team all thoroughly enjoyed ourselves! Both cohorts were focused and engaged.”
