Aiming high: Top achievers get the low-down on 'Oxbridge'
STUDENTS at Helston Community College are being courted by the great universities of Oxford and Cambridge.
The college welcomed Ashley Walters, from Oxford University, who had two sessions with high-achieving students in Years 11 and post-16.
The first covered interview and entrance tests and he then talked to about 50 sixth-formers about myths surrounding 'Oxbridge' and encouraged students to apply to the two universities.
Year 13 student David Hosking said: "It was a great chance to see the opportunities we can take as students." Fellow student Jack Reynolds added: "It was reassuring to be taken through the application process. It made it clearer and more achievable.
