The University of Oxford ‘Step Up’ Programme

A number of students from Years 11 and 12 have been selected to participate in New College’s outreach initiative.

The “Step Up” programme inspires and supports state school students throughout Years 11-13.  It aims to raise aspiration, and encourage talented students who might otherwise not consider Oxford as a realistic ambition.

During the sessions on the 27th September, the Year 11s participated in a workshop on “What is Oxford like?” and the Year 12s attended a workshop on “Critical Reading.”
