Aspirational trip to Oxford University for Year 10 students

I recently had the privilege of accompanying fifteen year 10 students on our annual trip to the picturesque and hospitable St Hilda’s College, Oxford. 

Our day was part of Oxford’s outreach programme, created to raise the aspirations of state school students into understanding and believing that they too can apply to study at one of the country’s top tier universities.

This time, our students got to experience typical lecture-style sessions, exploring the science behind an aspect of the study of Medicine delivered by the University’s top lecturers in this field.  Our students later experienced a further lecture in how Biology feeds into Medicine, this time led by two current Oxford undergraduates. Both lectures were challenging, yet interesting for our budding scientists.

As usual, St Hilda’s provided us with a tour of their unique buildings followed by a tasty and substantial lunch which always proves to be a highlight of the day!

Many thanks to Corinne Tomsett at St Hilda’s for organising the day’s programme and also to Mr Bacon for accompanying us for the day.
