Former Norwich High pupil represents Oxford

On Monday 26th September, former Norwich High School Head Girl Rachel Duffy appeared on the BBC's University Challenge, representing St Anne's College Oxford.

'It was a really exciting day out', commented Rachel. 'Jeremy Paxman was much nicer in real life than he appears on TV!'

Unfortunately her team lost to a team from Pembroke College Cambridge but they put up a good fight, scoring a respectable 140, and presenter Jeremy Paxman suggested that they might make the second round as one of the highest-scoring runners-up.

Congratulations to Rachel for being selected for a team from such a prestigious college.
