Year 9 University of Sussex Graduation
Our Year 9 First Generation students had a fantastic evening on 15th May at their 'Graduation' ceremony at the University of Sussex’s impressive Jubilee Building! On arrival the students and their parents were welcomed with drinks and a buffet followed by a welcome talk from the Making Choices team, a campus tour then an information, advice and guidance talk. The students then donned their gowns and mortarboards and took to the stage to be presented with their graduation certificates and have their photos taken! Our thanks to all the Widening Participation team for a brilliant evening celebrating all our students' hard work on the FirstGeneration Scholars at the University of Sussex scheme. We are very proud of all of our students and hope that this experience has inspired them to think about applying for University in a few years' time!
