On Thursday 1 February, academic scholars from M5 and L6 travelled to Cambridge University as part of the school’s enrichment programme. Joel Fox, L6, tells us a little more about the trip...
"Following a visit to Norwich School back in September to be our guest speaker at the Scholars’ Dinner, we were welcomed by Professor of Linguistics, Bert Vaux, who kindly took pupils on a tour of King’s College Cambridge, exploring its rich history, architecture and culture.
Afterwards, Pupils had the opportunity to ask questions to Professor Vaux and a post-graduate student at the College about linguistics, the application process for other subjects and life at Cambridge University. We ate lunch together in King’s dining hall, got a glimpse into the Graduate Suite and had a browse in the college library.
For M5 scholars, the day provided a chance to learn about King’s College and to begin to consider their future beyond Norwich School through exploring the wide variety of academic opportunities available at Cambridge University. While for L6 scholars, the day allowed some of those interested in applying to Oxbridge, particularly in linguistics and humanities, to gain an insight into life at Cambridge University and receive invaluable advice on the application process for next year."
