Virtual Reality allows you to explore three-dimensional spaces – photo-real or computer-generated – using a head-mounted 3D display that tracks your movement as you walk, plus two hand-held controllers that make the technology uniquely interactive. The Virtual Reality suite is equipped with three room-scale VR stations using HTC Vive.

The Aspirations Academies Trust in England is a charitable organisation operating in association with the Quaglia Institute for School Voice and Aspirations (QISVA), a non-profit, financially independent organisation.
