Will Manor Students "Be Cambridge"?

Will Manor Students "Be Cambridge"?

On Tuesday the 21st of March we were delighted to welcome a group of students from King's College, Cambridge University, to talk to 30 of our Year 10 students. This is the fourth time we have welcomed the students from Cambridge in what is always a superb experience for Manor students. This year we were lucky to have students studying Philosophy, Engineering, Natural Sciences and History with us, plus the Admissions and Schools Liaison Officer at King's, Caro Schade, who arranged the Access Bus visit to Manor and other Teesside schools.

During the extremely informative talk, students were fully engaged in hearing about university life, the different course available, different types of university as well as accommodation on offer during the university years. The talk was extremely realistic, delivered by those "in the know" and students from Manor thoroughly enjoyed the presentation. Comments included

I liked all of the activities during the session and it was really educational
it was interactive and the people from Cambridge were lovely

and

what I liked most was that we were able to talk to the students in smaller groups and ask any questions we had.

Asked what they liked least about the visit, Manor students said "Nothing! It was fascinating" and "Nothing! I liked everything".

We would like to offer our grateful thanks to King's College for sending students up here and look forward to hearing about former Manor students who have studied here, or at other universities!
