At Dunn Street we continually strive to provide pupils with opportunities to see further education as an opportunity and real possibility for their future.  We have fostered strong links with the Leisure and Tourism and PE and Sport Departments at Queen Elizabeth College in Darlington and have used the recording studios at South Tyneside College as an example of the variety of academic studies available to them.

In order to compliment and enrich this approach, upper KS2 also participated in a University Safari at Newcastle University.  The aims of the day were: to raise awareness of Higher Education; raising aspirations and development of teamwork skills.   Pupils thoroughly enjoyed the day and talked afterwards of the desire to study subjects ranging from mechanics to music to teaching.  A great success!
