Year 10 Learn About Oxford University

Ten Oxford Spires Year 10 students took part in a University of Oxford Pathways day, at Christ Church and Corpus Christi Colleges, on Friday 1 March.

Together with the group who went to Peterhouse, Cambridge, last half-term, these able young people have been learning about competitive university applications, student life, finance and all the extra-curricular activities you can take art in while studying for a degree.

Part of the school’s careers programme, helping students begin to think about their future choices, these visits sit alongside careers interviews, the Step Up programme starting in Year 11, INTO University workshops, visits to local colleges and employers and work with Study Higher. As an example of the sessions for particular year groups, Year 12 have a session after their mock exams on local apprenticeship schemes.

If a parent would like to speak to our careers advisors, they will be available on parents’ evening/morning each term, and you can book appointments as you can with teachers once the booking system goes live on Friday 15th March.
