KHVIII Oxbridge State School Project - Coundon Court

Partner: Coundon Court, Coventry
Partner type: Maintained School
Project category: Academic

In the last week of November, King Henry VIII School hosts an annual Oxbridge Interview Workshop. With over fifty students from nine local schools, alongside our own candidates for those most prestigious of universities, it is always a thundering success. Our representative from Clare College, Cambridge, puts the minds of those students who are hoping to be summoned for interview at ease, giving the true stories behind what happens at interviews, rather than the apocryphal ones that often get circulated. The students discuss possible interview questions, top tips for what to do when you get to the college and, most importantly, what to wear. The answer to the last one, by the way, is whatever you want. Within reason, obviously.

The students were overwhelmingly positive about the whole experience!
