On July 17th fifteen aspiring year 10 students went to visit Gonville & Caius College, Cambridge. The aim of the day was to give students a flavour of life at Oxbridge and to motivate students to consider whether or not they would like to apply to Oxbridge in year 12.
As well as a tour of the beautiful town and the college itself, students attended a lecture by the college’s liaison officer all about studying at Oxbridge and all it has to offer. This included getting the students to think about the sorts of things one needs to consider in order to apply.
The final activity of the day was a debate, using old Oxbridge interview questions for Economics and Philosophy, to demonstrate to students the sorts of skills required to excel in the unique type of learning environment Oxbridge offers.
