Over March and April, we had almost 400 school students visit Emmanuel College and our previous Schools Liaison Officer, Anita Magee, went to speak at 10 schools across Essex and Sheffield.
In March we held our annual East Asian Studies Taster Day organised with our Director of Studies Dr Moretti. Bookings for this event have grown in number each year and we had 30 Year 12 students attend this year. The students were given the opportunity to experience a Chinese and Japanese language learning session, learn more about applying to study at Cambridge, try out East Asian Calligraphy and watch a live Rakugo Performance!
March also saw Emmanuel’s first ever ‘New Subjects Day’ Event for Year 10 students. 90 Students from across 6 schools participated in 3 ‘New Subject’ sessions from a choice of Archaeology, Asian and Middle Eastern Studies, Engineering, Law, Medicine, Philosophy, Psychology, Sociology and Theology.
Feedback from the event was very positive with students enjoying the opportunity to study outside their school curriculum.
“It made me re-think what I want to do for A-level and University”
“I found interest in things I didn’t expect”
