On the 19th October a selection of students from Year 9 and Year 10 who attend NUFC sessions were taken on a trip to the Foundations new venue NU:Castle, located behind St James Park.
The students had an action-packed day and met groups from other schools. They took part in STEM workshops, E-Sports Games , Commando Joes Activities and played a game of football on the brand new 4G roof top pitch.
They were a credit to the school and seemed to enjoy every minute.
