Year 10: Visit to Oxford University

Year 10: Visit to Oxford University

A day at Oxford University was the latest experience to be enjoyed by 12 high ability students from Year 10 at Holyrood Academy. The visit was part of the Challenge Plus programme which operates in conjunction with other schools across the south-west.

The students spent time at Exeter College, as well as touring Keble College and the city itself. They learnt about the application and interview process, discussed A Level and undergraduate course options with current Oxford University undergraduates and had a practice at some actual Oxford interview questions which really tested the students’ critical thinking.

Mr Jamie Atkinson, responsible for the High Ability Student Programme at Holyrood, said: “It was a brilliant day! These students found the trip very informative and many came away enthused to apply for Oxbridge in the future.”
