Last week we held our fourth annual ‘meet the admissions /outreach tutor’ Oxbridge parents evening with Magdalen College, University of Oxford and Peterhouse, University of Cambridge.  It was a late night but a really useful and enjoyable one.

We had over 60 students and parents/carers attend from year 11 and year 12 in Tuxford and also students from East Leake, All Saints, Brunts, Mansfield and Newark Academy.

We’ll be doing more on the application process in the future and students should check their Teams page regularly.


Some comments from our students:

‘Very informative meeting with former students from each university which gives you the information and motivation to work towards applying.’

‘It was quite insightful and very helpful in coming to a decision. It covered everything from how to get into the universities to the finances. How to complete super curricular activities, what to expect at interviews and the application process were all useful.’
