A group of Year 10 and 12 students from Tavistock College have recently visited Cambridge University in order to learn how to apply successfully to Oxbridge and Russell group universities. The group were the guests of Downing College and found it highly motivating to stay in the Undergraduate halls ( we stayed in a room formerly occupied by John Cleese, in his undergraduate days!)
The group of very able students were shown around both Downing , Emmanuel College and Trinity College and spent an afternoon viewing the College “backs” from a punt on the River Cam.
They attended two academic sessions to show them what a typical seminar would be like and honed their critacl thinking and debating skills.
We are hugely grateful to Downing College who host Tavistock College every year and their schools liaison officer goes so far as to say, “it is one fo the highlights of his calendar to host students from Tavistock College.”
