Explore Oxford

We've set a little challenge for your first Monday at St Clare's, to help you to get to know Oxford a little better!

Spend some time exploring your allocated area and see if you can answer the questions. There are also prizes for the best photos, so make sure you submit them to us via Snapchat, Facebook (post to St Clare's Summer Teenagers 2017 group), Twitter or Instagram, (use #STCExplore).

Good luck!
