Congratulations to two of our Year 13 students on receiving offers for Oxford and Cambridge University.
Fergus Egan enjoyed the best Christmas present when he heard that he had been offered a place to read philosophy at Christ’s College, Cambridge. Sam Currie had to wait for the New Year for his offer to read physics at Magdalen College, Oxford.
To gain offers from both universities, the boys had to go up against competition from students across the country and indeed from around the world. A comprehensive application form and then a gruelling series of interviews ensued before the good news arrived. The members of staff at school recognise that they both fully deserve the offers and share in their success.
Sam and Fergus both need to attain three top A-Level grades to secure the places, so there is still much work ahead but they are currently on course to achieve the target grades.
We await further news of our other four Oxbridge applicants.
