Ok, I couldn't resist giving my own impression of Bryanston, which sadly was nowhere near as positive as that of others here. I do, however, suspect that the fact that I've already been at Cambridge for a year and had a gap year before that influenced my opinion. The place seemed full of public school kids who really were a breed apart - I felt 'common' for the first time in my life, despite having gone to private school from the age of 10. The social composition put me in mind of how state school kids fear Oxbridge will be, but which it actually isn't. I was totallly unimpressed with the 11pm curfew and the banning of members of the oposite sex from even the communal areas of the Houses. The food was uninspiring to say the least (someone should really have told the kitchen staff that chicken is not the only meat). I was in the Beginners' class, and whilst my teacher, Antony Bowen, was fantastic, the Reading Greek Course leaves much to be desired. I could scarcely conceive of a more random method of teaching Greek if I tried, with grammar being introduced in a haphazard fashion rather than being presented in its entirety in neat, comprehensive tables. It seems that the experience is more enjoyable if you are studying proper Greek literature. The course was certainly not worth over £500, and I wouldn't chose to go again next year.
