Year 12 students engaged in an online outreach presentation from the team at Gonville and Caius College, University of Cambridge.
The presentation began with a general discussion about competitive courses and universities, before delving a little deeper into the opportunities available at the University of Cambridge. During the presentation, students heard from current students and were able to engage in a Q&A about how the students prepared and how they have found the transition. They also discussed the importance of the super-curricular with guidance being provided that signposted specific resources that would enable the students to stretch and develop their wider experiences.
This activity was especially for our Russell Group University Scholars group – some of these students completed the scholars programme with Mr Worker in KS4. Similar activities are provided for a range of students in Y12 and Y13 according to their plans and aspirations
We are looking forward to working with the team at Gonville and Caius college as the year progresses and have plans for further meetings and a visit in the Spring.
