The years of hard work from seven fabulous Sixth Form pupils has paid off this January, and they are delighted to receive offers from one of the two most esteemed universities in the UK, Oxford and Cambridge. Congratulations!
Dr McGregor-Jones, Head of Year 13 and Oxbridge Coordinator, said, “We had another successful year of applications with 18 students getting to the interview stage. We are very proud of all of the girls who made it that far.
“There were 7 offers made, one of which was to a student who sat her exams last summer and applied post-results: Katie Hobson will be heading off to Oxford to read History this September. Our other offers at Oxford were to Lucy Buchanan (Engineering) and Hannah Edwards (Chemistry). For Cambridge, Beth Kearsley (Economics), Lottie Cummings (Modern and Medieval Languages), Fu Ge Yang (History) and Maria Novikova (Law). Well done to these students!”
Hannah, commented, “I am really excited to have been offered a place at Oxford to study Chemistry. It was a really friendly and welcoming place when I went to visit and felt like the right place for me to continue my studies.”
