Year 9 Students Visit Liverpool Hope University

This last week, Mr Blower, Mr Burns and Miss Shaw had the pleasure of taking 45 high-performing Year 9 students to Liverpool Hope University as the first in a planned series of university contacts that will take place over the next couple of years.

This visit marks the fourth year that Heath Park has taken students to outreach events at Liverpool Hope, cementing a partnership which has just seen former Head Girl Abbie Hartshorne graduate from the university with First Class Honours in Psychology.

Excellence Academy students have the chance to visit a number of universities during their time at Heath Park as part of our attainment-raising strategies, and this is a particularly able year group who have the potential to do great things.

The university was highly complimentary about the students’ attitude and conduct, as well as about Heath Park’s commitment to challenging these students to strive for the very best opportunities at the end of their school journeys.
