Since the New Year our Schools’ Liaison Officer, Anita has been extremely busy speaking to over 1,000 students from 40 different schools by February half-term!
In January, we visited a number of our link area schools in Essex and Sheffield speaking at assemblies, running workshops and presenting at parent’s evenings. We also helped at Anglia Ruskin University’s ‘Eyes on the Prize’ days in Cambridge and Chelmsford, advising hundreds of Year 9 students on their future options and GCSE choices.
January also saw the return of the annual Cambridge University Student Union’s Shadowing Scheme. Emmanuel played host to 22 Year 12 students over 3 weeks as they attended lectures, supervisions, social events and sports training with our current students, to get a feel of what studying at Cambridge University might really be like.
In March we are looking forward to hosting our annual East Asian Studies Taster Day and our first ever ‘New Subjects’ Taster Day, which will allow Year 10 students to try out a range of University subjects that are not on the school curriculum.
