Oxbridge Residential Weekend

Tuesday 14th May 2024

Over this last weekend, 11 pupils travelled to a historic house in Herefordshire to meet academics from Oxford and Cambridge. Pupils were challenged with seminars on History, Politics and French, while the English applicants managed to read and discuss Shakespeare’s ‘Hamlet’ in (almost) its entirely.

Before the end of the event, each pupil experienced a ‘tutorial’ or ‘supervision’ with an academic. From reading recommendations to their first experience of an interview-style environment, the weekend has kickstarted our pupils, in the home stretch, towards an Oxbridge application in October.  

Our Medics, Engineers and Scientists will be experiencing a similar event over the coming weekend.
