Oxbridge Information Evening, Thursday 22 February 2018
Sevenoaks School hosted their annual Oxbridge Information Evening on Thursday 22 February for Sevenoaks and local schools. The aim of the event was to give current and reliable information about applying to both Oxford and Cambridge and to demystify the application process.
An audience of over 300 included Sixth Form students, parents and staff from Sevenoaks School, Wilmington Grammar, Valley Park School, Judd School, Rochester Grammar and Sir Joseph Williamson’s Mathematical School. An outstanding presentation was given by Dr Mark Wormald Senior Tutor at Corpus Christi College Oxford, Richard Partington, Senior Tutor and Senior Admissions Tutor at Churchill College, Cambridge and Dr Caroline Burt, Admissions Tutor at Pembroke College Cambridge.
They offered insights into the courses available, the application process, the selection criteria, admissions tests, and the distinctive style of teaching. They emphasised the importance of course choice.
The audience benefited hugely from their insights and we are very grateful to our guests for sharing their expertise. Big thank you to all the visitors and the event organisers, The Institute for Higher Education and Professional Insight.
