All attendees will stay in Trinity College first year accommodation, attend classes taught by University of Cambridge academics, and get the chance to visit the city’s fantastic museums and academic departments.
Attendees will also work on a group project as part of the residential, specifically designed to develop key skills and build academic confidence going forward into sixth form study, for which they will be mentored and guided by a current Trinity student. The project will take the form of a question similar in style to that of university study, around a particular subject area; we will endeavour to match students as closely as possible to their areas of interest and to mix students such that they work with others from the other attending schools.
The residential is entirely free, including accommodation and all food, and we will also provide funds to cover the costs of travel via public transport to and from Cambridge for all students and the selected teacher.
Teachers attending this event will benefit from a programme that allows participation alongside the students, as well as sessions designed especially for teachers, including information and opportunity to ask questions about the Cambridge application process, student subject choice guidance, and exploring resources.
Each teacher may bring up to a total of 6 students. A teacher must accompany the students for this event. There will be space for up to 7 schools to attend this event.

Closing date for initial (teacher) applications: 29th March 2019 – students will have until 5th April to complete their individual application forms.
