Trip to Oxford University

As part of a trip exploring the possibilities of studying Modern Languages at Oxford, a group of students from Lower School gained a key insight into life at university.

The trip took place on the 8th of March, and along with pupils from a local school in Church Stretton, we enjoyed both interacting with the undergraduates at Pembroke College and the group work on poetry. We were also grateful for the opportunity to ask questions about applying to university, the courses offered, and the advantages of studying Modern Languages. Later, a visit to Christ Church College and the Modern Languages Taylor Institute Library allowed us to see the beautiful architecture and history of the area.

Thanks to all the accompanying teachers and especially to Mrs. Somerville, who put a great deal of time and effort into the organisation of the trip. We are very appreciative to Oxford University colleges Pembroke and Christ Church, and the Taylor Institute library for giving up their time and hosting us.
