Year 10 students visit Cambridge University
Miss G Smith and Mr S Lewis took 12 year 10 students to Cambridge University on Friday 14th March to support challenging and stretching educational opportunities for all students, including the most academically able.
This is what the students had to say about the trip:
On the 14th of March we went to visit Cambridge University to meet their school liaison officer. We then went on a tour of the university, where we had the opportunity to see aspects of university life at Cambridge as part of Gonville and Caius college, a system unique to Cambridge and Oxford, ask questions about life as a student and the application programme, as well as the subjects you could study and the required qualifications at entry level.
We discovered a lot about the kind of experience you could have at a top level university, and the kind of things you should take into consideration when considering entering higher education, alongside the pros and cons of other universities besides Cambridge and the personality specific branches of universities.
The trip was an eye opener for all of us and made us think about the kind of aspirations we could have and what kind of experience we wanted from further level education.
