Year 8 Trip to JMU Arts College:


A group of year 8 pupils visited the Arts College and watched a brilliant presentation of the variety of careers in the creative sector.  The presentation was full of varied opportunities and careers that many had not thought about before.  This trip was timed perfectly as the whole of Year 8 had had a visit from BBC bitesize the day before who also highlighted the diverse range of creative careers and opportunities out there.


The college also presented to us the wide range of courses on offer at the college providing pupils with a real insight of what's on offer so locally to them.  There was a full tour of the college and all the facilities including Fashion design, Illustration, Architecture, Fine art, Printing making and much more.   The staff were really friendly and approachable and commented on how well behaved our group from De LaSalle had been.  



The pupils were involved in a design activity and were all fully engaged throughout the day.  It was a brilliant trip for all the pupils involved; sparking conversations about careers, option and future opportunities.
