Year 11 students taste life at the University of Cambridge

Ten Ruislip High School Year 11 students joined a wider Hillingdon schools trip to the University of Cambridge on Tuesday 19th September.

The students spent the day at Robinson College, one of the university's 31 colleges. They listened to a sample academic lecture about the unification of England, a talk about applying to university and what living and studying in Cambridge is like. The Year 11s 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 visit proved very thought-provoking for the students, as they saw all of the exciting opportunities that a Cambridge education could offer them, and realised that, with continued hard work and perseverance, a place at Cambridge is achievable.

As one student said: "I never imagined myself at Cambridge, but now I could see myself quite enjoying it here!" 

The school would like to thank Mr Peacock from the Geography Department for organising this trip.
