University Buddy Programme


Are you going to university?

We very much hope that your A Level results were what you were hoping for, or even better, and we hope that those of you aiming to go to university will do so.

We can help you!

The Ewell Castle School Marketing/Alumni Office is launching a new OE university buddy programme to help our Year 13 Leavers going off to university.

What is an Old Ewellian university buddy?

We can help put you in touch with a former Ewell Castle School student 'buddy' who may be studying at the university you are going to.  They will be a friendly familiar face who can help you in the first few weeks at university to show you around and or answer any questions you may have.

What do you need to do if you would like an OE buddy?

If you would like us to put you in touch with one, just email the following details to Ms Carol Hernandez at oldewellians@ewellcastle.co.uk 1) your name 2) your email address 3)  the name of the university you are going to.

Are there OE buddies at every university?

We are reaching out to Old Ewellians still at university to volunteer to become an OE buddy.  Thank you to the following who have already agreed to be OE buddies and the list continues to grow; Alex Hillman, Joe Koppenhout, Joey Hillman, Michael Slavin, Prince Botchwey and Rheanna Cottam.  However, we cannot guarantee OE buddies for everyone as this will depend on the number of OE volunteers joining the programme and it is unlikely that there will be OE buddies across all UK universities.

When will you find out if we have found an OE buddy for you?

If you have requested our help in finding an OE buddy then we will email you no later than 14th September 2018 with contact details of your buddy.  You will then need to email them yourself and thereafter make arrangements to meet up.

Winners of the Prize Draw
