A GROUP of Headlands students took-off for Humberside Airport as part of a scheme designed to help them reach for the skies.

They took part in a Hull Children’s University project which aims to provide aspirational learning experiences to encourage children to enjoy learning, work towards fulfilling their potential, broaden horizons and build relationships with communities.

The visit, by a group of year eight students, included seminars, a full tour of the airport and plenty of opportunities for the students to learn about the workings of the airport and the many different job roles involved.

There was also time to learn about the different languages and nationalities of passengers and about time zones across the world.

Ian Wormald, assistant headteacher at Headlands said: “The students have been picked to participate in this visit due to their consistent excellent behaviour, commitment to their studies and superb attendance.

“They will benefit hugely from experiencing the day-to-day running of the airport and hopefully the trip will encourage them to think about their future aspirations and how to achieve them.

“We hope to develop this community link with future trips co-ordinated through the university.”
