The Sutton Trust supports state school students to explore life at university through a week of subject-related and extra-curricular activities, free of charge. This year students attending the History of Art summer school were treated to talks and seminars with world-leading academics, visits to the Fitzwilliam Museum, King's College Chapel and the University Library.

The activities brought them face-to-face with wonderful objects, paintings, manuscripts and architecture, developing their knowledge of the subject and encouraging them to aim high when thinking about University and subject choices. Towards the end of the week the students prepared for a taster supervision, giving them an opportunity to see what life as a Cambridge undergraduate is really like. The week was rounded off with an Admissions Q&A and mythbusting session with Head of Department Polly Blakesley.
