Children from primary schools all over Hillingdon Borough took part in an exciting range of activities set to boost their interest in further and higher education.
The 200 Year 6 pupils at the Aspire 2010 event at Uxbridge College took part in workshops including art, forensic science, architecture, mechanics, sport, Bollywood, Chinese language and health.
The children, aged 10 and 11 years from 24 primary schools, attended the two-day event on 8 and 9 July.
Gavin Hughes, Director of Student Services at Uxbridge College, said: "This is the fourth successful year in which hundreds of primary school children have sampled all kinds of interesting activities at Uxbridge College.
"Not only do they have a great time, but it gets them thinking about the many education and training options open to them when they finish school.
"The 200 children who come to the Aspire event have a terrific time at Uxbridge College, learn a huge amount, and take home some great memories and valuable information about what's on offer to them in the future."
The event was led by Uxbridge College in partnership with the Hillingdon Improvement Partnership, Brunel University, Thames Valley University and the University of Westminster.
Aspire 2010 was funded by Aimhigher, a government body set up to encourage young people to continue their studies at colleges and universities after school-leaving age.
