Oxbridge Preparation Day
Pupils from both IPS and Grey Court have had chance to practise or Oxbridge applications. THe day was divided into three sections.
Firstly, pupils took an entrance paper in the relevant subject, and then received feedback on their answers.
Secondly, pupils were able to refine their personal statement drafts, again using the expertise of Ibstock's staff members.
The final section involved interview workshops, where pupils could discuss how best to answer the sorts of challenging questions that they might face in an Oxbridge interview.
Next year, we hope to invite more schools to this event.
Year 12 pupils
This was the first session, but it will hopefully be repetaed anuually, and will involve more schools.
