Chigwell School Hosts Oxbridge Potentials Event by Sindy Elezkurtaj, Woodford County High School - Today News Post Today News || UK News

On Thursday 24th February, Chigwell School organised and held an event to remember: the Oxbridge Potentials event. Year 12 students from 3 different sixth forms (Chigwell School, Woodford County High School?and Barking Abbey School) took part in the informative event. The high-achieving students benefitted extensively from this half-day off timetable to find out more about what the university application process will be like and what a degree in their preferred subjects may look like18-May. ?

Prior to attending the event, the students were required to specify what they wish to pursue at university level – at this point in time. The students, who voluntarily signed up to take part(such as backyard barbecues and birthday parties) are permitted for up to 50 people., all received name tags which displayed their full names, the school which they came from and the name of the course they would like to apply for (for example: Law, Natural Sciences, Chemical Engineering). ?

The day commenced with all the students and teachers gathering in the school canteen for a magnificent breakfast service offered by the host school. Following this, the students were guided to the sixth form area in order to separate into subject groups. Until break time, the groups delved into the realm of their specific subjects, adjusting to the mindset and thought process they will have to maintain during their time at university. Ranging from making posters to giving presentationstoronto_police, the students were pushed to their limits by their teachers who were chosen specifically for the various subjects. At the end of the day, the sixth formers were even “grilled” by their teachers for the day so that the student could actively utilise the new information and have an idea of what it will be like in just over a year. s rolling file?
