On Wednesday 21st March, our Lower Sixth Form students had a grand tour of the Universities of Central London. We started with an informal tour of the University College London (UCL), before walking through the University of London Union, Birkbeck College and the School of Oriental and African Studies, on our way to the London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE). At LSE we were greeted by the LSE Student Recruitment Coordinator Sara Mullen, who gave us a most informative presentation on all aspects of the London School of Economics. Ms. Mullen particularly emphasised the importance of an outstanding personal statement in order to be considered by a top university such as LSE. Our students took away a lot of useful tips for their UCAS application forms.
Last but by no means least, we made our way to King’s College London (KCL), where we were cordially welcomed by four alumni St. Johnians lead by Kesh Bakrania. This is the second year that Kesh kindly agrees to introduce our Lower Sixth Form to KCL. It was great for our current students to connect with fellow St. Johnians and to gain their perspective. It was also an excellent opportunity for teachers and former students to catch up and share memories as well as news. Both the students and teachers had a very productive and enjoyable day.
