Oxford University Step-Up Trip

Last Thursday, 53 Year 11 and 12 students visited Oxford University as part of the Step-Up Programme, an initiative organised by the College, aimed at increasing access to Oxford University for students who attend state schools across the UK.

Whilst the Year 12 students toured Jesus and St Catherine's Colleges, Year 11 took part in a session about the application process to Oxbridge.  Following lunch in New College, the groups both took part in a tour of the college, attended an introductory lecture on Particle Physics and put their questions on university life to current Oxford students. 

A thoroughly productive and informative day all round!
