A day at Oxford University for over seventy Year 7 students on Monday was the perfect way to start another aspirational week at Lambeth Academy. The sun shone brightly as eager students boarded the bus and spent the journey chatting excitedly about the schedule of events they had to look forward to. Students were welcomed into Jesus College and split into groups for a scavenger hunt and tour around the university by College students. Tour guides pointed out historic buildings and shared fascinating insights such as the fact that there is a person who’s tasked with removing an extremely valuable portrait of Queen Elizabeth I from the student refectory in the event of a fire. Following the scavenger hunt students settled down to a picnic lunch and then spent the afternoon taking part in lectures by Doctors of History and Philosophy. The day ended with the request by host Dr Matthew Williams Access and Career Development Fellow Jesus College, Oxford, that students “Be philosophers” and continue to develop their love of learning.
