Year 9-11 able and ambitious talk Oxford
28 November 2022
Monday this week saw our first ever visit from the recruitment staff at the University of Oxford to promote the education and extraordinary range of opportunities which studying at Oxford can allow Priory pupils.
Pupils who are identified as our most/more able (top 20% of pupils in Year 9, 10 and 11 based on their SAT scores) alongside other pupils who had shown the ability, ambition and potential to achieve at least a Grade 7 in a specific subject were invited to attend.
There is no typical Oxford student, and no single Oxford experience and this session was aimed at providing our pupils with the sense of ambition to match their ability, with the self-belief to be whoever they want to be; to feel confident and excited about their future, be that at Oxford, or indeed any other Russell Group university.
As part of our Careers Programme we are now working to make sure that every pupil in Year 9 has the opportunity to visit a local university by the end of this academic year.
