Anglia Ruskin University

14th Jan


Year 6 visited the Chelmsford campus of Anglia Ruskin university today to find out first hand what university life is like. It was a terrific day .........


After chatting to student ambassadors and a tour of the campus, children completed their own university-based activities then had the opportunity to present their work in the lecture theatre. They will also have the opportunity to show their work to their parents at the university family day in March.


Hopefully some of our pupils are now inspired to aim for university when they are older.
