Year 12 visit to Keele University

On PD Day year 12 visited Keele University. An introduction to university life was given followed by a tour.

The campus provides a wealth of amenities including a gym, Multi Faith Chapel , bank and restaurants. The site is a hybrid of modern and more traditional buildings on 620 acres of land with eight lakes.

David Bedford Maths Lecturer gave an insight into infinite number patterns, so Mr Lloyd was in his element! Bartosz Walzak contributed answers and devised his own theorem stating, “the day was really useful and I can’t wait to go to university”.

The Business, Finance & Accounting lecture focused on risks and probabilities and touched upon the effects of Brexit.

The Psychology talk was based on the Harry Potter stories. Dr Yvonne Skipper gave a most amusing talk on how prejudices were demonstrated through the houses in Harry Potter!

The History lecture gave an insight into communication through the ages with the current issue of “fake news” explained. The use of traditional postcards versus the now common instant messaging we were explored.

The day was thoroughly enjoyed by all.
