This week eight of our of Year 12 students had the fantastic opportunity to visit and stay overnight at Trinity Hall College, Cambridge. Trinity Hall is home to a friendly community of Cambridge students, tucked away on a beautiful riverside site by the city centre. It is one of the oldest colleges of Cambridge University, founded in 1350.
Students from a range of secondary schools across Bath travelled together and were greeted with a series of inspiring and informative sessions including sample lectures, student experience, personal statements and interview advice. Students were provided with a tour of multiple Cambridge colleges, a trip to Heffers bookshop, Q&A with student ambassadors and free time across the city.
This trip forms part of our ongoing programme of enrichment, designed to prepare students for the next stage of their academic adventure. This will be followed up later in the year with various events such as UCAS fairs, progression week and visiting speakers.
For those interested in the Oxbridge process please do speak to Mr Boutland-Smith. He will be able to offer guidance and support you on the process.
As a reminder, Year 12 and Year 13 may wish to attend university open days. These visits can be very worthwhile and can give you a clear picture of what the courses involve and how well suited you will be to the university. We will authorise two absences per academic year to facilitate these days. Please complete the absence request form available from Mrs Kinch. Please do look on the following website for more information on these events. https://www.opendays.com/
