Schoolchildren were given a the chance to “graduate” at an event held at Sir Robert Woodard Academy.

Year-six students from Sompting Village Primary School, in Whitestyles Road, celebrated a mini graduation at the academy, in Upper Boundstone Lane, as part of the Moving Forward project. The aim of the on-going project is to raise awareness and aspirations in the students about their future choices.

As part of the programme, students spent a day at the academy and a day at Chichester University’s Bognor Regis campus, taking part in a range of activities and working alongside ambassadors from the university.

Russ Ferrier, assistant principal at Sir Robert Woodard Academy and Michael Lock, primary project Officer for the University of Chichester, liaised with year-six teachers from Sompting Village Primary School to put the programme together.

Mr Ferrier added: The students gained a lot from the experience and the seeds of future choices have been sown.”
