A lively group of pupils from LEH made the most of their visit to Oxford this weekend (8 February 2020) to see first-hand what life is really like at one of the leading universities in the country.
The eager Lower Sixths, who are currently considering their university options, grilled LEH alumnae now studying at Oxford Uni about all aspects of life as a student, from accommodation to lectures and from sports opportunities to living in college.
“How hard do you have to work?” asked one, while another wanted to know: “What’s the best thing about being at Oxford?” They were talking to the current Oxford students over lunch in a beautiful oak panelled room at University College.
Accompanying the pupils for the day were a group of LEH teachers, including Oxbridge Co-ordinator Andrew Hayter, Assistant Head in charge of Sixth Form Mark Tompsett, and Careers Teacher Natasha Murray.
After lunch, it was time to see the City Centre and tour some of the colleges to check out the facilities and get a more-in-depth insight into college life. We are very grateful to all the alumnae who kindly helped out. It really did make the day invaluable for pupils trying to work out which degrees to take and where to study.
There are forthcoming trips for the Lower Sixth pupils to see Cambridge University, on Saturday 8 March, and London, on Saturday 21 March. If you’re currently studying there, we would love you to join us for lunch. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org
if you can come.
