Year 9 students visit Cambridge University

Five Year 9 high-performing students from the Anglo European School have participated in the Department for Education’s prestigious Future Scholars Award, attending Cambridge University on the 19th June for a insight into University life and education. Samuel Ameiza-Djabli, Franziska Beck, Tabitha Campbell-Mansfield, Keir May and Max Ros spent a day at the university and undertook a range of activities including discussion  about university life, information and guidance about the impact of sixth form choices, a Q&A session with existing undergraduates, a guided tour of the campus, and a final session punting up and down the river Cam! It was a fantastic day where the students learnt a great deal about the opportunities that await any high-achieving student if they decide to pursue their academic studies into Higher Education. The five students are keen to feedback and share what they learnt with their peers through a presentation and discussion, encouraging other potential future scholars to develop the necessary skills and qualifications necessary to pursue their high aspirations.

“it was a great experience which has certainly helped me gain some understanding of how university works and I am very pleased that I was picked to go”- Max Ros
