Risedale College's Impact Day for Higher Education

The Higher York Network for Collaborative Outreach (HYNCO) returned to Risedale Sports and Community College on Tuesday 19th April in its continuing work with the pupils to encourage the idea of higher education in the future.

FilmAll university and college partners in the network travelled to Risedale to work with Year 8 students across the school. A carousel of activities were given across the school to help inspire students about their options in higher education. Activities were supported by student ambassadors from the partner institutions, covering areas such as student finance, revision tips and the student experience.

This event is a continuation of outreach activities arranged with the school throughout the year, such as mentoring and campus visits. Each partner has also supported school activities such as the Careers Cafe, to enhance the work being done by the school themselves.

The school has also promoted the activities being run to expand students' horizons on social media, so that parents and the local community can find out more about how students have been engaging with the universities and colleges.

Higher York and its partners will continue to work with schools in York, North Yorkshire and parts of East Riding. If your school is interested in activities provided by HYNCO, please visit or telephone 01904 876350.
