Students visit the University of Oxford

A number of students took part in an overnight trip to a Mathematics, Physics and Philosophy taster day held by the University of Oxford. The taster day is aimed at able students in year 11 looking at how computer science, physics, and mathematics all have one thing in common: philosophy.

The day consisted of lectures and college tours, as well as advice on the Oxford application process. Speakers were University of Oxford lecturers and students.

It was a fantastic opportunity to see some of our brightest students not feeling out of place at a highly regarded learning environment. The students thoroughly enjoyed their trip, and said they would like further opportunities to go and visit universities in the Future.
