During lunch an Ofsted inspector talked to some of the participants. We ate outside as the weather was lovely and saw lots of university students going about their normal routines. We then had a law session with one of the heads of the Law Dept.

We then walked back to St. John's College and had a lovely lunch, one young person when asked what they liked most about the day said:
