OxNet at Southmoor Academy

OxNet is an unapologetically academic programme run by the University of Oxford, which aims to bring university into the heart of local communities. It is an intensive and sustained programme for high achieving Year 12 students across the North East area, and has expanded significantly since the launch of the hub – we now cover Sunderland, Newcastle, Middlesbrough, Stockton, Hartlepool and County Durham.

For the first time, OxNet is being delivered online due to restrictions posed by Covid-19. This means that courses that were previously specific to one region are now open to students across the country. There are five courses to choose from this year: Humanities and Social Sciences, Languages, STEM, ‘The Ordered Universe’, and Philosophy and World Religions. All courses include working with academics conducting world-leading research, taking part in lectures and seminars, and attending a virtual summer school hosted by Pembroke College, Oxford.
