NKS Oxbridge Society runs throughout the year and is open to all suitable candidates from year 11 and 12 who are interested in applying for places at Oxford or Cambridge University. We run discussions, discuss responses to challenging questions, offer help with interview preparation and invite guest speakers who have had experience with interviews at Oxford and Cambridge often attend give talks to students.
Our own Oxbridge Candidates and ex-students are also available on a regular basis to offer support and advice about entrance tests and interview experiences.
We have had much recent success with gaining places at Cambridge for masterclasses for a wide range of subjects including, law, physics, economics, history, biomedical science and classics.
The society is run by Mrs Shore and we meet every Thursday at 1;15pm in F5. Pop in if you are interested.

Congratulations to Izaak Cobb who has been successful in gaining a place to study history at the highly competitive and prestigious Eton Summer School. It will be a fantastic experience for him and enable him to immerse himself fully the subject. Izaak will not only get fantastic university preparation experience but he will also be able to use their amazing facilities. Well done!
Thank you to our recent speaker Callum Shaw, who is an ex NKS student. He is currently reading PPE at Oxford University and his talk gave our year 12 students an excellent insight into the application process and life at Oxford.
