Third Form Scholars and Exhibitioners headed off to Oxford for a day of academic extension. They started by gaining an insight into the life of an Oxonian by visiting Corpus Christi College. They toured the college and gardens before a talk by the outreach officer on university life and  Oxford in particular. They were then treated to a whirlwind tour of some of the key sights of the city by Oxford alumnae Miss Spencer and Mrs Patterson, including the Examination Schools, Botanical Gardens, the Bodleian Library, Sheldonian, Radcliffe Camera and Bridge of Sighs.

 To round the day off they united to defeat the Fourth Samurai, take on the Wild West and rescue Blackbeard’s treasure in a series of puzzles and challenges. I’m glad to report that all the groups ‘survived’ and escaped!
