The University will be co-hosting a three day Sports Summer School for local Year 10 pupils after a successful bid for funding with Aimhigher London South. The school, which has 40 places, will take place in the Easter holidays. We will be working with a number of education providers in the area to provide a fun and engaging programme which will highlight progression routes and careers in the sports industry.
Students will have a taste of Sports Science at the University working with undergraduates and the Faculty of Science who will be running bio-mechanics sessions in their labs. In a session at Kingston College students will have the opportunity to consider their next steps and find out about post-16 qualifications. Furthermore they will meet students and athletes from the College’s successful sports Academy athletes who will share their experiences.
For a site visit they will go to a top sporting venue and look at the commercial aspects of large scale events and tournaments followed by an afternoon at St Mary’s University College to participate in sports activities. Current students from Kingston University, Kingston College and St Mary’s University College will be working alongside the Year 10 pupils throughout the programme to ensure they get a firsthand experience of what it is like to be a student in further and higher education.
