Oxbridge

I haven’t had internet or 6 days! :O
Shocking I know, but last week, on Wednesday and Thursday, budding Oxbridge candidates from Forest School went to visit  both Cambridge and Oxford universities, for tours, to look around colleges and to see what life would be like if we were to attend.

I think it is fair to say that for many of us, the dream of attending such prestigious colleges are merely what we would like and not necessarily what will happen. However, this didn’t subtract from our trip to two truly stunning cities.

In summary:
Cambridge was a tiny city, more so a large town and I felt I knew my way round after 5 hours spent there. Nevertheless, it was a stunning city. It looks just as pretty as it does in the pictures with a winding river through the centre.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Oxford on the other hand was a mixture of a picturesque and modern city which created quite a bizarre world. We were walking down a road and on one side would be a building, several hundred of years old, and on the other side would be a giant glass and metal structure. However it was still somewhere I would only dream of being in 2 years.

Over-all it was a pleasant experience and I can only hope that I will be at either place when I finish school.

Oh and thanks to: Bella, Velma, Ant, Ed, Will and Josh who were there for me and cheered me up when I was very poorly in Oxford. Much love to you all xoxo

Never a white Christmas, always a white February

It is becoming a tradition in London for it to snow every February but that does not stop us all being excited and swamping every social networking site.

Now, before I start, I’m no photographer, so any photographs included in this post is merely to help you visualise what happened today.swamping every social networking site. So here’s my entry:

 As I have complete Silver Duke of Edinburgh, I am now doing Gold, for which we had a training weekend yesterday and today. 90% of it was completely pointless but today we planned our route for our practise expedition in Dartmoor.
Nothing like chasing each other around a massive snow-covered field for team-building. We shall be walking around 20km every day for 4 days climbing up to 550m above sea level. Today’s day at school started off with a snowball fight, of course, which lasted around an hour and a half. My fingers were completely numb but it was so worth it.
