On the 5th March a party of the College's Most Able Year 10 students braved bitter cold and rain to visit The University of Oxford, as part of the college's partnership in the South West Academies Group (SWAG) Challenge Plus programme - and the College's own Aspire program.

Our thanks to Miss Wakeham for supervising the students on this trip and for everyone who worked tirelessly around the snow disruption to ensure that everything went smoothly.

Year 10 Students Visit Oxford University

A Student’s View of the Oxford University Visit

Our visit to Oxford definitely gave all of us an exceptional insight into the day-today life of a student.  It was clear that being at Oxford was not just about studying and exams but also about having a community of like-minded people around you.

We enjoyed a tour of Oxford University Exeter College campus and a Humanities taster lecture.  We also talked to student ambassadors throughout the day about their courses and the university in general from both an academic and non- academic point of view, which was the best part of the day for me as the students gave us an honest unbiased opinion of life at Oxford.

It was a great day and I think I speak for all us when I say that it was really enjoyable and informative.
