2023 OxNet Student Announced

Congratulations to Ben Anderson who has been selected as this year’s Year 12 participant in the prestigious ‘OxNet’ programme. Ben will be completing the  ‘English’ strand – The OxNet English programme is ran in partnership between Pembroke College, University of Oxford, and Oldham Sixth Form College. The programme of study is focused around Postcolonial Literature, and in particular: racism and inequality, gender and sexuality, environment and eco-poetics, freedom and independence and hybridity. A variety of literary texts will be explored, including Shakespeare’s The Tempest, alongside extracts from novels, such as Midnight’s Children, Wide Sargasso Sea, White Teeth, and Girl, Woman, Other, as well as poems by, for example, Langston Hughes, Maya Angelou and Benjamin Zephaniah. Ben will not only take part in regular workshops and lectures but will also be invited to Oxford University itself to take part in the OxNet Summer School with all the other students from across the country who are part of the programme.​
