Early in October, CH girls’ rugby visited Oxford University’s Keble College for a training session and to find out more about university life.
Director of Rugby, Ian Davies and teacher, Eleanor Holmes accompanied the 15 girls who were given a guided tour of Keble College and informative presentations on admission to the University. They also had a training session with the University’s coaching staff and with ‘blues’ university level sports teams.
Verity Butt, sixth former and rugby vice-captain said: "This trip enabled us to learn useful skills, not only to help us with university applications but also it was immensely useful for developing our rugby skills. I cannot wait to see what girls’ rugby holds for our future."
The girls soaked it all in and so did the teachers. Eleanor Holmes took the opportunity to learn more about the application process for pupils interested in studying engineering degree courses at Oxford whilst Ian Davies bounced rugby ideas around with the coaching staff. Keble College students are renowned to excel not only academically but also in music, drama and sport.
