Punting, May Balls, The Footlights and the river Cam - it can only be Cambridge University

Current LEH pupils visited Cambridge this weekend (March 7 2020) to find out all about life at the top-ranked University in the UK.
After a look around the history-ladden streets, the enthusiastic Sixth Formers made the most of their time talking to group of LEH Alumnae, who are current undergraduates at one of the oldest universities in the UK.

They chatted over a buffet lunch in a striking wood-panelled room, filled with early Spring sunshine, in the Upper Cloisters of Jesus College, asking them lots of questions about every aspect of life at Uni; their courses, the difference between the colleges, the sporting facilities and the social life.

It was their chance to get an inside peak into the life of a student at the prestigious university with its 31 colleges, as they consider their university options before filling out their UCAS forms by October.

Head mistress Heather Hanbury thanked the alumnae for giving up their Saturday to come.  “If you’ve got one thing in common, it’s how exceptionally busy you all are, so we really do appreciate it.  It makes such a difference to our students to hear from you first-hand.”

LEH will be holding a lunch for Sixth Formers and Alumnae at London University on Saturday 21 March.  If you are currently studying there, we would love you to join us for lunch.  Please email if you can come.
