But don't just takeour word for it...
I chose Wilberforce because of the supportive teaching staff and the welcoming feel of the college. My favourite memory of Wilberforce would be the heart dissection that we did in A Level Biology; I had so much fun and the staff let me stay after class to further explore the anatomy of the heart.
The Excellence Programme along with the excellent Careers advice really helped me weigh up my options and supported me through university applications. Our trip to the Oxford and Cambridge open days really stuck with me. My time at Wilberforce has provided me with some of my best memories of education; I made friends for life and loved the college so much I went back as a university student for two years to mentor and help Biology students with their revision.
