Students from three schools in Enfield visited King's this week. The students learned about the Cambridge admissions system and the university’s collegiate structure. They had a tour, an introductory talk, and lunch in the Hall at King's. They also visited Newnham College for a tour and sessions on interviews and personal statements.
The 36 students, who travelled to Cambridge with their teachers, came from Broomfield School, St Ignatius College and Edmonton County School. They will be taking their AS exams this summer and most will be applying to university in the autumn.
"Cambridge is just beautiful," said Georgina Prodromou, who goes to Broomfield and hopes to study English at university. "I’ve never been anywhere that seems so organised and combines old and new so well."
"I was totally taken aback by the buildings – it’s all so impressive," said Joshua Ward-Loughran who goes to St Ignatius and plans to study for a science degree. Feyza Kat from Edmonton County wants to study law. "Cambridge is definitely somewhere I’d like to be," she said.
