On Wednesday 14th June, a group of Year 9 students and parents visited Magdalen College of Oxford University. In glorious sunshine, we had lunch in the medieval hall, a tour of the grounds, a visit to the Ashmolean Museum and a presentation on how to progress to the top universities.
Our students were fantastically well behaved and excellent representatives of the school and community.
The message from the presentation was clear: in order to have the best options open to you in the future, work hard and make sure that you get the best grades that you are capable of!
