During their Future and Skills lessons the Year 13s have recently been looking ahead to life at University and beyond Clifton High. Our pupils have been learning about student finance and budgeting. Importantly, they have been working out after what they will have left to cover their living costs after they have paid for their accommodation. This is a valuable lesson, which will help ensure that they are fully prepared to accurately budget for living away from home.
In one session the Year 13s looked at how much a weekly shop would be, learnt about cost effective meals and were given some shopping tips. This was followed by a cooking workshop, where our students learnt some easy, healthy and on-budget meals to prepare. The meals produced were excellent and sure to keep them strong and healthy whilst learning at university.
