Villiers Park

Have you considered a Villiers Park Reading Week? Unsure? Too much like hard work? Boring? Read on!

On Tuesday 16th February 1999, I set off to join a week-long reading party for Classical Civilisation at Villiers Park in Foxton, which is situated near Cambridge. After reading the list of students attending and the schools they went to I realised, with some terror, that they were mostly Public School pupils and I was expecting a dull week with monotonous lectures and surrounded by snooty intellectuals.

I could not have been more wrong, everybody was completely down-to-earth and the course was absolutely fascinating. This course was a turning point in my classical education and it has made me realise that I wish to study it to degree level. Villiers Park holds courses for most subjects - from Classics to Engineering - and I would recommend it to anyone.
