Cambridge University Talk

This Tuesday (17/05/11) Central Foundation students, along with fellow IC6 schools (Highbury GroveHighbury Fields Schools and St Aloysius College), attended a talk given by Dr Melanie Taylor from Cambridge University.

The event was aimed at the Gifted and Talented cohorts from each school and designed to alleviate fears about Oxford and Cambridge university. It aspired to outline how different they are from mainstream universities and the benefits of attending. The 60 students who attended found the presentation very enjoyable and had many questions for Dr Taylor.

As part of the next stage of the Raising Aspirations programme the 60 students are being taken to Cambridge University for the day this September. The same group will be returning to the university in February 2012 as part of the HE Fair which together fifty universities be attending. At the event Dr Taylor will present to parents about Cambridge and Oxford universities.

This is only one of the many strands of work we do with our Gifted and Talented and any student that aspires to progress to university. For more information on this work please see:
