At the end of last term, 15 of our Year 11 students made the journey to Cambridge University for a day’s taster event at Girton College.
After a challenging ice–breaking session, the students were treated to a presentation about the college, a guided tour and a terrific lunch in splendid surroundings. One of the highlights of their day was meeting students already at ‘Gerty’, and having the chance to hear first–hand what college life is really like.
The trip was a great success, and our students were inspired by this special behind–the–scenes glimpse of one of the UK's oldest and most prestigious universities. Even the day's stormy weather couldn't dampen their spirits! As one student said, 'The college is lovely and definitely one that I'd consider applying to.'
