The annual Bishop Thomas Grant School Higher Education and Careers Convention took place on Monday 29th June and was attended by over 150 Year 12 students. Representatives came from many of the UK's top universities, including Cambridge, Bristol, Exeter and Newcastle, and the top London universities were well represented by King's College, the London School of Economics, Royal Holloway, Goldsmith's College, SOAS and City University - in all, just under 30 major institutions attended the Fair to recruit amongst BTG's sixth-formers.
In the afternoon students had a choice from 18 different seminars - some of the visiting universities looked at finance and entrance procedures and there were talks on various professions, including medicine, the Law, IT, project management, insurance, design, teaching and even becoming a chiropractor.
Ms Tesfageorgis, BTG's Careers Co-ordinator, organised this highly successful event. Mr Stapelberg, BTG's Director of Sixth Form said, "We are very grateful to Ms Tesfageorgis for organising this event - many university representatives have travelled great distances to be here today and they have reported that they have never before been to such a well-attended event in the state sector. I am particularly grateful to our current Year 13 students for helping out as ambassadors, and also to loyal parent Mrs Fleet for providing the cakes we had for refreshments".
