Annual Outreach Events

If you would like to know more about our visits into schools and school visits into Trinity throughout the year please follow these links: Trinity visits into your school & School visits into Trinity College.

Alongside inbound and outbound visits to schools, Trinity College hosts a number of annual outreach events:

Women in Sciences:

Trinity ran a ‘Women in Sciences Day’ on 20th February 2019 alongside Jesus College for Year 12 female students interested in studying science at university. The day comprised of lectures and workshops delivered by female academics to give students a flavour of what it is like to study science at university and to encourage them to aim high in their applications to university. Over 80 students attended and the day was a great success. Next year, we hope to expand this day to include more students.

The North East Residential:

Booking for this year’s residential is now closed. If you have applied for this opportunity and not yet heard from us, please get in touch at access.officer@trinity.ox.ac.uk.

This residential opportunity is supported by Trinity College, St Anne’s College and Lincoln College, Oxford. This trip gives students from the North East an opportunity to visit the University of  Oxford as easily as possible. It is a three-day programme that combines with the University’s Open Days. In addition to exploring Oxford on the Open Days, students will stay in student accommodation, attend academic sessions and have opportunities to speak with current Oxford students from the North East and members of staff. This year provides an additional opportunity for Teachers from the North East to join the programme to receive specialist guidance relating to the application process, personal statement support, reference writing, stretch and challenging your high achieving students & using the EPQ effectively. To apply you should:

  • be in Year 12 at a state school/college in North East of England
  • be a teacher in a state school/college in the North East of England
  • be predicted at least three A grades at A Level (or equivalent)
  • have at least 5 GCSE at grade  either 6, 7, 8 or 9 (or equivalent)

In 2019, the residential will run from 2nd-4th July. It is completely free of charge for students, including coach travel to Oxford, all food and two nights of accommodation at either Trinity College or St Anne’s College.

Classics and the Ancient World Summer School:

Trinity runs this outreach programme to give bright students from state schools in Oxfordshire and the surrounding areas a taste of Classics.

The programme builds on ‘OxLAT’, a new initiative run by the Classics Faculty for teaching Latin ab initio up to GCSE. Now in its second cohort, the scheme attracts over 100 applications for the twenty-five places each year from a diverse range of backgrounds. As Oxfordshire is one of Trinity’s link regions, Trinity takes those who have completed OxLAT (now in Years 11 & 12) and offers an ‘advanced’ programme to continue with language acquisition in Latin and to introduce other areas of Classics.  Beginner’s Greek is taught alongside Latin and the curriculum is supplemented with taster sessions in diverse aspects of the ancient world including literature, philosophy, ancient history and archaeology (topics have included the emergence of the alphabet, the performance of ancient drama, Periclean Athens and Augustan Rome, Greek vases and Roman houses, and a variety of Greek and Roman authors).

The Programme comprises three day-schools and a week-long summer school in each year of the two-year cycle. The course is offered free of charge to participants.  Exposure to the Classical world provides numerous educational benefits in its own right (including detailed language skills, cultural awareness, critical analysis) but we hope that for many of our students we are forging the start of a beautiful relationship with Classics, moving onto an undergraduate degree, perhaps at Oxford and maybe at Trinity.

Open Days:

Trinity College will be open for prospective students on Oxford University Open Days. 2019 Open Days will be Wednesday 3rd July, Thursday 4th July and Friday 20th September.

Additionally, departments will hold Open Days on the following dates:

Individuals are welcome to come and visit the college free of charge for a self-guided tour. This will give you a good feel for the college and its location.
