Our Schools Liaison Officer is available to visit schools in our Target Areas (Suffolk, Rutland, and North Yorkshire.) To find out more about the Area Links Scheme and which Cambridge College focuses on schools in your region, please visit: https://www.undergraduate.study.cam.ac.uk/colleges/area-links.
Kathryn, our Schools Liaison Officer, can provide a number of different presentations and workshops for teachers and students, including:
- General information about access to University
- Applying to Oxbridge
- Interviews at Cambridge
- A Level and post-16 Subject choices
- Student life at Cambridge
- Applying to competitive university courses
Kathryn will endeavour to visit as many schools as possible during the course of the academic year. She will be able to tailor presentations and workshops to suit the needs of individual schools. Given the size of our target areas, she will aim to arrange for ‘hub’ events at schools, where larger schools will invite smaller, locally based schools to come along to events so that the maximum number of schools possible can be contacted. If you are interested in collaborating with other schools in your area on an event, please let us know when booking a visit.
During a visit from St Catharine's, we normally spend an hour on each session we deliver. The key purpose of such visits is to provide information about Cambridge in particular and Higher Education in general, with specially tailored sessions for year 12/13 students considering applying. We work mainly with students at Key Stages 4 and 5, though we're very happy to deliver sessions which involve parents and/or teachers too. Our sessions are always focused on the needs of the audience and we're willing to discuss more specific provision upon request.
