Year 10 Trip to Hope Academy

Learning about critical thinking with Cambridge University!

15 of our Year 10 students attended an interactive talk given by Natalie Thompson from Magdalene College, Cambridge University.

The students learned about critical thinking and metacognition. They were challenged to think in different ways and were given different scenarios to work through. There was also a section on how there are various ways to study and how they aid different personalities, and we finished off with a chat about University tuition fees.

The students benefitted from some useful information, and found the whole experience very enjoyable.
