Inspiring day at Oxford

11 students in 6.1 travelled to the University of Oxford last term to attend one of their annual Open Days. The morning was spent visiting departments: a good range of interests from our students here, including Classics, English, Engineering, Computer Science, Biological Sciences, Modern Languages, Music and others. After a picnic lunch in glorious sunshine on the banks of the Cherwell, we set off to visit many of the beautiful colleges, from the gothic splendour of New College to the quiet intimacy of Corpus Christi. Throughout the day, our students had the chance to hear lectures from university staff and meet current Oxford students, as well as soaking up the heady academic atmosphere. An inspiring day was had by all.
