School Visits

Newnham hosts School Visit Days for different age groups throughout the year. For these events, priority is given to state schools from Newnham’s Link Areas.

We are currently in the planning stages for the next academic year. More information and resources will be made available over the next few weeks in advance of the new academic year.

Newnham’s Visit Days are completely free, and tailored to the age of the student group. Each visit will run from approximately 10am – 3pm and will typically include the following:

  • Detailed information on applying to universities and Post-16 choices, as well as what it is like to be a Cambridge student
  • A Q&A with admissions staff
  • A student Q&A
  • A tour of Newnham College
  • An academic taster session
  • Lunch will be provided if requested

The exact programme for the day will be confirmed in advance of the visit. Groups from multiple schools may be present on these visit days.

Questions about these visits should be sent to
