“Harrow School and Twyford C of E Academies Trust were proud to hold the inaugural Lumina conference in summer 2014, and we thank John Lyon’s Charity for their continuing funding support. Through this programme, we will encourage bright young people across northwest London to aim for Oxford and Cambridge places, and help to create a peer group of like-minded students who not only have similar aspirations but are really well informed about the admissions process.”
