Brilliant Club Launch Trip - Oxford

On Thursday 18th Jan, 24 of our fantastic Year 9 students attended the Brilliant Club Launch Trip to New College - Oxford University, to start their Scholars Programme.

Throughout the day they attend both an IAG and study skills session before engaging in their very first tutorial based upon two supra curricula; "Pain, neuroscience and a good excuse to electrocute people" and "The Renaissance and its legacy: beauty, genius and revolution". The students additionally received a tour and was utterly inspired by the university, the undergraduate students and the overwhelming beautiful environment. It was an absolute pleasure to finally hear our students say "Yes, I am going for Oxford!!" with complete self-belief and confidence!

The students were a credit to the Academy, not only from their impeccable behaviour but also from their participation. They had a brilliant time broadening their horizons, whilst also taking lots of pictures in the Harry Potter hot spots!
