As part of our commitment to stretching our most able academic students, our Year 11 STARS visited Merton College Oxford and Year 10 STARS took part in a 'Challenge Day' facilitated by Emmanuel College, Cambridge.
Many of our Year 11 students are staying on at 6th Form and the 6th Form Team want to ensure that our students know that they are academically able to apply for the UK's top universities.
Year 11 students actively took part in an interactive Computer Science lecture where they demonstrated their intelligence and creative thinking. Feedback from the Oxford Ambassadors were extremely complimentary recognising both their achievements and resilience in tackling something completely new.
Year 10 students took part in a range of challenges to develop their critical thinking ability and were pitched against other schools from all over the UK to debate a specially selected topic. Our students conducted themselves with great maturity and demonstrated a deep knowledge of debate etiquette.
All students had a fabulous day and both groups received many positive comments regarding their excellent conduct. Watch this space for our first ever Oxbridge student!
