Year 6 Trip to Oxford University

Today, Year 6 visited Wadham College in Oxford to get a taste of Oxford University life!

Y6 Oxford 2017 14

The day started in Wadham College’s chapel, where children showed immense respect and curiosity about University life.

They quizzed students about what it’s like to study at Oxford, had a tour of the college and ate their lunch in the refectory. The Chaplain, Revd Wendy Wale, also introduced the children to the college’s welfare dog, Jonah, which the children loved.

It was a particularly exciting day for one of our pupils, whose parents both studied at Wadham. Tradition dictates that a child whose parents both went to Wadham College is allowed to stand on the quad grass (which is completely out of bounds to anyone else!).

After learning all about the college, they did a short tour of Oxford, finding out about the inspiration and history behind C.S. Lewis’ Narnia books, and Lewis Carroll’s Alice in Wonderland stories.
