Taster Day at Cambridge

Wed, 15 Mar 2023

Last week, a group of 6.1 students took part in an academic taster day at St John’s College, Cambridge to find out more about living and studying in a highly academic university community. The students enjoyed meeting current undergraduates who showed them around the college and talked to them about their experiences of applying to and studying at Cambridge.

In the afternoon, the students took part in academic taster sessions, linked to their area of subject interest. Some students visited the beautiful neoclassical Fitzwilliam museum of art, whilst others investigated the Whipple Museum on the History of Science, or took part in a session decoding ancient gemstones.

The visit to Cambridge University was organised as part of the Oxbridge preparation programme which supports 6.1 students who have aspirations to study at Oxford or Cambridge.

Mrs Flynn, Director of Careers said:

“ I was delighted to see the students engaging so positively with all the activities and asking some great questions to find out about life at Cambridge. It was a really inspiring day and we are grateful to St John’s and all the students ambassadors for making us feel so welcome.”
