Lifting the Lid on Life at London University

This weekend a group of current Lower Sixth pupils met up with some of our alumnae now studying at various London Universities to quiz them about what life is really like for a student in the capital.

Student accommodation, course content, sport facilities, cheap eats, and the difference in teaching styles were all on the agenda as the two groups chatted easily over a buffet lunch at the Wellcome Collection, next door to UCL where several of the alumnae are current undergraduates.

Head Mistress Heather Hanbury thanked them all for coming in person after two years of being unable to hold the event, explaining how valuable it was for pupils as they finalised their university choices and completed UCAS forms.

“We are very grateful to all of you for giving up your Saturday mornings,” she told them.  “And we are very much looking forward to seeing you back in school soon for the next alumnae reunion or networking event.”
