Students get a taste of university life
Year 9 students from The Skipton Academy widened their horizons in February.
As part of the Higher York Network for Collaborative Outreach (HYNCO), the youngsters visited university and college campuses across York to see the broad range of opportunities on offer.
Some students had a chance to learn more about academic lectures and seminars, while others visited an agricultural science lab and a variety of other land-based teaching facilities.
Higher York partners worked together to ensure students experienced a taste of the diverse range of courses available.
Sara Elson, Assistant Principal at The Skipton Academy, said: "The visit has been brilliant at widening the horizons of our students and showing them what life outside Skipton could be like."
