Twenty-four students from Nexus 7 and CSIA had an incredible opportunity to visit two Oxford colleges to get a taste of university life.
The day was packed with activities; the students learned more about the courses and opportunities available at university. They were amazed to find that there really is a Quidditch Club already at Oxford University and a number were keen to sign up there and then!
The Nexus students were guided around Exeter College by current undergraduate students which gave them a chance to find out more about life at the university and the application process.
They were treated to lunch in the great hall before being challenged in a maths workshop delivered by Dr James Munro in the Maths Department.
Finally, during the plenary session students were reminded that if they want to realise their big dreams and secure a place at a top university they need to work hard, secure excellent grades and ensure they are developing their critical thinking skills.
We have every confidence that this excellent group of students have every chance of success in their ambitions.
Perhaps Quidditch should be a part of our co-curricular programme?
