As Schools Liaison and Outreach Officer, I work with schools and teachers to create informative and engaging outreach events for their pupils. We host visits to Newnham from schools around the UK, and work closely with schools in our link areas (Birmingham, Walsall, Enfield, Redbridge, and Dagenham and Barking). I also visit schools in our link areas to give talks on different aspects of higher education.
I graduated with a BA in English from University College London, followed by an MPhil in Modern and Contemporary Literature from the University of Cambridge. Throughout this time I participated in a variety of Access and Outreach initiatives, aiming to advise and inspire young people who might otherwise feel apprehensive about applying to top universities. In my role as Schools Liaison and Outreach Officer, I provide support and guidance to potential students on a variety of topics relating to Cambridge University and higher education more generally. In doing so, I hope especially to encourage those who might have previously felt that Oxbridge was not for them.
