A Trip to Pembroke University, Oxford with the Brilliant Club

Miss Miles and Mrs Jowett took a group of 12 Year 10 students to Pembroke, College, Oxford for the launch of the Scholars’ Programme run by the Brilliant Club. 


This programme teams a PhD student with a group of students to give tutorials on their specialist subject and at the end of the programme the students write a 2000 word essay which is then marked to degree standard.  This time our students are going to study Phylogenetics (family trees of animals by studying the fossil record). Our students had an informative and aspirational day with talks, tutorials and a tour of Pembroke College.  The day included lunch in the dining hall at Pembroke College which was a bit like dining in Hogwarts!
