Woodbridge Launches New Junior Oxbridge Programme – The Fitzgerald Society

22 Jun 18

The Fitzgerald Society is Woodbridge School’s new Junior Oxbridge Programme, aimed at intellectual high fliers in Years 10-11 with a zest of knowledge and exploration. Pupils interested may not even be looking to end up at Oxford or Cambridge, but will love thinking and tackling challenging ideas.

There will be a mixture of events and subsidiary activities, starting in Michaelmas 2018 with a trip to the British Museum to explore how power and authority can be conveyed through images, rather than words. Other major events will include a moot (mock law trial) where you will study evidence, create your own cases, and bring them to court. There will also be a trip to either Bawdsey Radar exhibition or Bletchley Par. Pupils will also have the opportunity to take part in the Alan Turing Cryptography competition run by Manchester University.

Subsidiary activities will include exploring the use of arsenic in the Victorian era, and logic problems set by GCHQ.

For more information about how to apply please contact Miss Anne Wright in the Classics Department.
