Three Esher College students enjoyed a stay at Cambridge University as part of a two-day conference.

Annabel Biggs, Rebecca Anderson, and Lucy Courtnall, all 17, were among 100 young women from schools across the country to attend the pathway to success event at Murray Edwards College.

The conference aims to help girls focus on opportunities and choices ahead of them in a supportive and inspiring environment.

During the conference, the Esher students shared their ideas about what success means, took part in workshops and socialised with other academic students.

Dr Hilarie Bateman, admissions tutor at Murray Edwards College and organiser of the conference, said: "It is a great pleasure to us to welcome such bright and talented young women to the college.

"The mix of backgrounds, experiences and aspirations leads to lively discussion about what matters to them and how to make it happen.

"It is a pleasure to celebrate what these students have already achieved and to share in the sense of the possibilities that lie ahead."
