Aureus Scholars visit Oxford University

Our KS4 Scholar students visited Oxford University this week for a special day out.

Taking the train, the first stop was Trinity College where they learnt about the fantastic educational opportunities. The students were left in awe at the majestic contrast between the historic exterior of the college and the modern facilities within and many were considering Trinity as their go to college for post 18 education.

Next on the agenda was a visit to The Ashmolean Museum. Students were elated to see the hundreds of artefacts from all over the world during different time periods.

Year 11 student, Louis was particularly excited about the exhibits,

“There were tools used by the first settlers of Egypt in one room, and famous artworks from Renaissance Italy in the next”, he said.

Many students also enjoyed the freedom the Ashmolean trip provided, allowing them to look at exhibits based on their interests rather than following a tight schedule.

Finally, they completed their trip with a look at the Bodleian library. The scholars felt privileged to be able to enter such a historic place and were delighted to learn about it’s rich and influential history, they were also graced with many interesting facts surrounding the building such as the law against flames used in the library and the head librarian's vow of celibacy.

Mr Ali, Assistant Headteacher for Raising Standards, said "The Scholars’ Programme at Aureus School is about raising aspirations and awareness about the array of achievable opportunities available to our young people. We look forward to more visits to leading institutions and organisations across the United Kingdom."
