Local pupils have enjoyed extension science classes on Saturday morning; support for their university applications and there have been many joint events such as the economics trading day and Model United Nations and a medical conference. Lower Eighth students (Y12) have done exchanges with Ark Putney and regular teacher visit occur with a number of different schools.
Medical Conference – ‘I just wanted to say thank you for a phenomenal day yesterday. The line-up of speakers and the quality of their talks was really excellent. The students and I all got so much from it’
Physics, Exponential problem solving morning - ‘The Saturday event at St Paul’s school was brilliant. We came across problems which we didn’t really have much knowledge on and I must admit, were extremely challenging. However, we sat in random groups for the sake of Physics and managed to solve a few problems by applying and sharing knowledge. The teachers were really helpful and they raised interesting discussions; especially Mr Tom, who got us thinking about gravity and how it acts on a pingpong ball. All in all, the event was brilliantly painful and it gave me the type of pain that I’d absolutely love to experience again.’
University Preparation - ‘I just wanted to email you personally to thank you and your staff for supporting the students from Waldegrave in their applications to Oxbridge. To summarise we had 14 students applied, 12 got interviews and 6 were offered places. I know that the staff at St Paul’s gave up their time to mentor our students and we really appreciate the part they played in their success. We are so lucky to have you as a neighbour and supporter’
‘I received an interview offer from St. Catherine’s College, Oxford to study chemistry yesterday. I’ve also received an offer from Imperial (A*AA), UCL (AAA) and Warwick (ABB) all for chemistry. I wanted to thank you for all your support and guidance. I feel I could not have made it to this stage without it. I’ll keep you updated on the progression of my application and hopefully come back to you with some good news’
