A (literal) field trip to Oxford’s Port Meadows was grounds for a lively debate in a lovely setting! A heated debate took place over the meaning of GDP and alternatives for our collective future.


This afternoon Dr Jasmine Jagger gave a lecture on ‘Edward Lear’s Feelings’. This was followed this evening with an excellent talk from our Critical Thinking teacher, Will Jefferson, who spoke on his research into the philosophy of empathy.

Students are now enjoying the pleasant Oxford evening after a day of rather unpredictable rain!


Punting, Round 2!

While England was cooling off from a major heatwave, students were cooling off from classwork with another session of punting on the Thames.  The circuit passes through the bucolic Christ Church Meadows, with a few low-clearance footbridges to keep things interesting for our able-handed punters.  Dinner was quick and delicious before a garden theatre performance at 7:30.


On The Ball

Cam Trad ended for another year last night in the best way possible, with a fantastic final night ball that included giant swings, crazy golf, a chocolate fountain and henna artists. Our students were all dressed to impress for their final dinner and for the prize presentation. The night was rounded off with a classic Bop, with tune selections by our rival DJs, Manny and Shea Shea.

It’s been great to see everybody on the Cam Trad taking so much from their classes and forming such strong friendships over their time here. We hope all of our alumni will carry some strong and happy memories of their summer at Jesus.

So long for another year!

Open Mic Night

Our Open Mic Night was one of the highlights of the program so far, as it highlighted the range of talented, funny and energetic people we have here at the Cam Trad (and that was just the staff performances). Students displayed their aptitude in a range of disciplines, from singing to poetry. It was amazing to see so many of the Cam Trad family there to support each other!20180801_210448

Art Showcase

Our Art Studio, Photography and Architecture were able to show off the fruits of their labour yesterday, as they hosted our Cambridge Tradition Exhibition! T

he event was well attended and well enjoyed by all who came to see the fabulous work our students have to offer. Although a high standard of work has come to be the norm over this summer, we were still stunned by the quality of the artworks that our students produced!
