Giving sixth formers a taste of University style teaching, 2015

The Ashmolean Museum has been developing study days for sixth form students on an expanding range of subjects including Classical Civilisations, Art & Design, History of Art and Chaucer’s World.

Sixth Form Study Days involve a combination of lectures and gallery- based practical workshops. As part of The University of Oxford, The Ashmolean Museums is in an unique position to give access to world class collections and provide sixth form students with a taste of University style teaching. The aim of each study day is to support classroom teaching and give a wider context and challenge to students to think beyond their studies in school. Study days offer a practical way of reaching large numbers of students and offering a wide choice of workshops and speakers, which would not be possible if we worked with individual schools.
