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.
