Oxbridge Project Interviews

Dr O’Hear: Mr Ribton and Ms Pretsell put Aishni Mittra from 7B through her paces in one of the many Oxbridge Project interviews that are taking place all over the school this week.

56 candidates from years 7-10 are competing for just 20 places on this competitive scheme designed to prepare our very brightest students for the rigours of Russell Group university entry. They are being tested on a range of unseen texts, current affairs questions and a range of subject specific questions. Aishni stood up to some robust questioning on William Blake’s poem, The Echoing Green.
