Visit to Oxford University
Four Furze Platt Sixth Formers visited Oxford University this week to attend some 'informative and thought provoking' lectures on American Politics.
The first talk, given by Jeffrey Weinberg (Washington Campus; Office of Management and Budget, Executive Office of the President of the United States) discussed 'The Trump Presidency: How is he using the legislative ‘tools’?'
The second talk centred around a range of experts debating 'A Post-Mortem of the 2016 U.S. Election' and included questions such as 'What is on the agenda? How is he going to achieve his policy commitments? What challenges is he likely to face?'
The talks were attended by Furze Platt Year 12 students Sterling O’Donohue, Louisa Snape, Polly Batstone and Ben Townsend. Mr Towill (Deputy Headteacher) who arranged the visit, described the lectures as 'informative and thought provoking'.
The students also toured Queen's College and met PPE undergraduates from Brasenose College, who discussed their PPE course and the admission process.
Thank you to everyone involved and to Dr Joe Organ and students from Oxford University.
