Year 7 Visit Cambridge University

Last week, members of Team Brunel in year 7 were given an amazing opportunity to visit Clare College at Cambridge University. After a brief presentation in the lecture theatre about different types of universities, we went on a tour of Clare College. We saw the university accommodation and the huge copyright library! At lunch time, we popped into the Grand Hall where students eat dinner on special occasions. It was a lot like Hogwarts!  I felt really privileged to have been given the wonderful opportunity to see one of the greatest universities in the country. One of my favourite moments there was when we went to explore the town centre of Cambridge; just seeing the university all around you, as well as the antique and historic shops, was a fantastic experience.

Later, we visited The Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology with an expert in anthropology. The artefact I found most interesting was a model ice-sculpture from Tahiti. We learned to think about anthropologists and the strategies we would use to find out about people.

I thoroughly enjoyed the day and the trip helped me to realise that university is not just about studying but also to enjoy other activities and interests.       Harry, Year 7 Student
