Next Steps - alice
I'm just about to join Oxford to read Physics and Philosophy. What I found during my time at Cheney was that teachers are always happy to challenge you further if they see you are interested. The Physics department took us to lectures at Oxford which made me fall in love with the place and want to apply - these trips gave me an opportunity to see what further education was like. Cheney has a history of students doing well and so you aspire to be like them, it also gives you the confidence to know you can do it.
Being in the debating team here at Cheney also gave me the opportunity to visit lots of colleges and it gave me lots of confidence. Its something I would like to continue at Oxford.
