Year 8 INTO University Buddy Trip

On Thursday 21st March 2024 and continuing with our partnership with INTO University, we took a group of Year 8 students to St Hilda’s college for a buddy experience day.

The day was to look at what University life would be like and to raise the aspirations of our students who would not ordinarily choose to go to University. Ben, Phoebe and Sarah from INTO University led the trip and they will continue with our students until Year 11 and should they decide to attend OSA Sixth Form, until Year 13.

St Hildas researchers and ambassadors worked with our students on language and linguistics. The new language they learnt about was Catalan, Basque & Mauritian Creole.
It was a very interactive day with teams,quizzes,tours and lunch, provided by St. Hilda’s.

We are super proud of the Year 8 students who represented OSA respectfully.
