Yesterday, the students staying in St Peter’s College entered their penultimate morning of lessons. The students have come on in leaps and bounds; every pupil is undoubtedly far more prepared for their future endeavours at university, in all courses covered here in St Peter’s. The students undertaking the New Perspectives programme are all demonstrating clear interests in particular subject fields, and we hope their interests will continue to flourish after their time with us here at Oxford Royale Academy.
Students spent the afternoon ticking off some of the best city sites from their Oxford bucket list. First on the list was a tour around Christ Church College, including access inside the Great Hall and roaming through the impeccably kept quads. Christ Church is the only college in the world that is also a cathedral, although it is the smallest in Britain, it is still incredibly intricate and steeped in history, including an 8th-century relic of nun Frideswide, patron saint of Oxford.
The students then got to try their hands once again at punting, this time with far greater success. Having previously tried last week, the students proved to be experts by the end of the session, racing back to the starting point under Magdalen Bridge.
In the evening, the students made tie-dye t-shirts ahead of tomorrow nights ‘Carnivale’ themed graduation ball. Some remarkable results came out and students can’t wait for them to be dry and wearable tomorrow. Following this, the Birds of Prey team visited, providing an interactive performance, where students got to see and hold a variety of different birds. The students’ favourite was unquestionably the Three Eyed Raven, featured in the hit television series ‘Game of Thrones’.
