Seven boys are celebrating this week after hearing the news that they have been offered a place at either the universities of Oxford or Cambridge. These prestigious offers cover a range of subjects including the Sciences, Languages to Economics and Psychology.
|Will Ashcroft||Biomedical Sciences||Magdalen College|
|Ewan Gordon||Economics and Management||Brasenose College|
|Lucas Inman||Chemistry||Corpus Christi College|
|Matthew Lewis||Biological Sciences||New College|
|Oliver Burridge-Dean||Land Economy||St John's College|
|Oscar Hill||Psychological and Behavioural Sciences||Gonville and Caius College|
|Joe Fordham (OB)||Medieval and Modern Languages||Sidney Sussex College|
Oscar Hill, who has been offered a place to read Psychological and Behavioural Sciences, was ecstatic when he read the offer email. “I have always been interested in people and the mind in general, and to have the offer to study PBS at Cambridge is a real honour.” Oscar is currently studying Mathematics, Biology, Latin and Religious Studies at A-Level, and is keeping open-minded about what he might like to do in the future.
Ewan Gordon has an offer to read Economics and Management at Oxford. He became passionate about Economics after starting in the Sixth Form last year as he feels it complements his desire to learn more about the world’s problems. He is currently studying Economics, Mathematics, Further Mathematics and Politics at A-Level and chose this course as it would enable him to continue his love of Economics but also provide him with essential management skills.
Both boys were very grateful to their teachers for their unwavering support and expertise in the application process, including Dr Palmer (Oxbridge Coordinater) and Mrs Lincoln (Head of UCAS).
Deputy Head (Academic) Mr Sam Baldock said, “We are absolutely delighted for the boys and it is pleasing to see such a diverse range of subjects represented within these offers. All the boys have worked incredibly hard to receive these offers, however we also applaud those boys who applied but did not receive an offer on this occasion – they too have demonstrated great academic passion and commitment to their chosen areas of study. In addition to their academic excellence, all of these boys have made a generous contribution to wider areas of school life .”
We wish all the boys the very best when they sit their exams in the summer.
