The power of our outstanding sixth form is currently very much in evidence with some superb university offers on the table.
A total of eight girls are now holding offers for Oxford, Cambridge and competitive courses such medicine, dentistry and veterinary science, requiring rigorous entrance tests and interviews, with four more awaiting interviews.
This is an outstanding success rate with almost 20% of the year group taking highly competitive courses.
And we are pleased to see a number of girls pursuing exciting careers in traditionally male-dominated areas such as engineering, physics, astrophysics and computer science.
Acting Headmistress Mrs Joanne Keville said: “It takes a lot to stand out from the crowd in today's competitive world and my congratulations go to all those students who have presented themselves so superbly through their personal statements to achieve this outstanding set of offers. I would like to mention particularly those girls who have also passed challenging entrance tests and sat interviews to achieve their offers for Oxford, Cambridge and highly competitive courses. We honestly could not be more proud of them all.”
All of our university applicants are currently holding offers for their chosen courses except students opting for art colleges who offer later in the application process.
