Students experience life at Oxford

Thirty students from Winstanley College took a residential trip to Oxford earlier this month to attend the Oxford University Open Day.

The visit included a detailed look into what life at the historic university is like as well as the chance to stay in the accommodation at Merton, Pembroke and Christ Church colleges.

One of the highlights of the trip was the three-hour walking tour, ‘Oxford by night’ (with the group clocking almost 30,000 steps for the day!). 

Former Winstanley student, Alice Wong, who is now studying English at Oxford, joined the tour and provided a student's eye view and real insight into the application process as well as sharing her experiences of university life. 

This truly capped off an excellent year for the Oxbridge programme at Winstanley College, which also saw its co-ordinator Matt Fisher nominated for a ‘University of Oxford Inspirational Teachers Award 2019’. 

Matt was nominated by Alice who cited that his ‘support and encouragement’ in the application process and ‘the time he dedicated to each individual’ as the reason she is now studying at Oxford
