Francesca S in Year 10, visits Oxford University

18 April 2024

During the Easter holiday Year 10 student, Francesca Singh, visited Oxford University as part of a week-long course to inspire girls into studying Engineering at University. Francesca stayed at St Hugh's College along with school students from across the country. She attended the Engineering department every day and had fantastic opportunities to complete practical work, computer programing, listen to University style lectures, participate in engineering games and go on a company visit t to learn about waste management. The week culminated in a formal dinner with Oxford Professors and a presentation with parents invited.
'This was a fantastic experience for Francesca which she thoroughly enjoyed. It provided a great insight into a career in engineering and will undoubtedly help her with future University applications' -  Deputy Headteacher, Mark Warland,
