During the first week of July two Year 13 pupils, Aaron McFarland and Robert Smyth, were accompanied by Mr Duffy on a visit to Oxford University for the Northern Ireland schools' 'Summer School'.
They were hosted at St Catherine's College where they stayed for the duration of their trip. The visit allowed both pupils the opportunity to experience life at the University, meet tutors, participate in College life and explore the various faculties and campuses they were interested in.
The boys had the opportunity to receive guidance on the Oxford application process and liaise with current undergraduate students.
Sincere thanks to Kathryn Thompson, St Catherine's College's Access and Admissions Registrar, who facilitated the visit.
