Oxford Admissions Event - 25 September 2019. Annual presentation to local schools about the process of applying to study at Oxford. This was the fourth such presentation in the current format, with an admissions officer from Oxford giving her personal view and advice and encouragement to an audience of about 250.

Thanks to the panel, to the Oxford outreach officer, and to Sir Thomas Rich's School (Gloucester) for hosting this event.
