Gifted Students Visit Oxford
On Thursday 18th May, four students from the Academy travelled to the University of Oxford with Miss Harrison and representatives from other schools from around Staffordshire. Ali; Simeon; Shazmeen and Talbashah Javid (all Year 10) were the students selected because of their motivation and potential.The visit was kindly organised and funded by Newcastle-under-Lyme College. The day involved a tour of University College, lunch with current students and activities to raise students' aspirations and help them to achieve a place at a university such as Oxford one day. The day was enjoyed by all the students and they had an opportunity to meet with other enthusiastic students from the local area.
