Every Monday morning at 7:30 a.m., a group consisting of both lower and upper sixth formers, meet to discuss Oxbridge applications.
This is guided by Head of Sixth Form, Miss Bellerbey, who over sees the discussions and problem solving on a wide variety of past oxbridge interview questions, such as:- Why do some habitats support higher biodiversity than others? Why do we have red blood cells? These may sound simple, but the way in which you have to answer the questions is far from simplistic. We have already gained skills on ways to conquer such questions; being open minded and having a wide range of unusual proposals being two of the many.
These sessions are becoming so valuable in order to strengthen our analytical thinking, and we are all very grateful for this opportunity.
