In November, four of our Sixth Form students attended the launch of the 2017-18 Norfolk Higher Education Scheme at County Hall, accompanied by Mr Nevard. After introductory speeches, speakers from the University of Cambridge, University of Oxford, and Birmingham Conservatoire gave an insight into the Oxbridge admission process and the student perspective of applying and going to university.
As part of the HE Scheme, our students will have the opportunity to attend subject masterclasses that give them the chance to experience undergraduate teaching. It will also offer application workshops, mock interviews, and admission test preparation, helping our students to apply and interview for the most competitive universities.
Mr Nevard said, “it is an excellent initiative as it can help to raise students’ aspirations and ensure that they have the same opportunities available to them, regardless of their background”.
