Stroud - Spellbinding lessons on uni

30th July 2010 at 01:00

Pupils have been taking part in "Harry Potter" days to learn about life at university.

Year 6 children from Park Junior School in Stonehouse, Stroud, were among those who took part in a "campus quest" while dressed in wizard gowns. They were there to find out about student life, courses and careers at the Royal Agricultural College in Cirencester.

The day was organised by the Aimhigher initiative, which attempts to increase the numbers of students going to university. It also included drama lessons and a magic show. DM.
