Reaching out

Submitted on 30 March 2022

After the inevitable disruption caused by the pandemic, our school outreach programme is now back in top gear. For the first time at Selwyn, we have two school liaison officers: Amelia Grigg based in Cambridge, and Joe Stanley based in Yorkshire. This reflects our commitment to finding students from all across the United Kingdom, and paying attention to areas where there might have been under-representation.

Joe reports on his early weeks in his new post:    

“My first weeks as the Northern SLO at Selwyn have been fantastic. I’ve been out and about in West Yorkshire delivering sessions to Heckmondwike Grammar School, Dixon’s Unity Academy, and Prince Henry’s Grammar School in Otley, and I’ve booked several school visits to Selwyn in June and July.  I am working with my mentor, Sian, the Queens’ College SLO for Bradford, and I’m visiting several schools to ‘Introduce Cambridge’ to Year 9s and Y10s. I’ve had several virtual meetings with teachers at schools and colleges in West Yorkshire about how I can best support their students who are considering a Cambridge application and I’ve already met some really talented young people who would thrive at Cambridge. All in all it’s been an exciting time.”
