“The School of Education is a big warm family. From the very start, there were many activities and trips for us to get together, including a weekend in the Lake District and day trips to the Education Show in Birmingham, to Chatsworth House and to Marsden Cuckoo Festival - nice opportunities for new MA students to get to know more about each other outside of the classroom.”
