Year 11 students experience life at the University of Cambridge

Nine Ruislip High School Year 11 students joined a wider Hillingdon schools trip to the University of Cambridge on Thursday 20th September. The visit was led by Ruislip High’s Assistant Head of Year 13, Mr Peacock. The students spent the day at Robinson College, one of the university's 31 colleges. They listened to a sample academic lecture about gender history, a talk about applying to university and what living and studying in Cambridge is like. They also had the chance for a question and answer session with current students of the College about their experiences. The day finished with students being given a guided tour of Robinson College. The day proved very thought-provoking for the students, as they saw all of the exciting opportunities that a Cambridge education could offer them. The students realised that, with continued hard work and perseverance, a place at Cambridge is achievable.
