Oxbridge offers for 2015

Posted on: 20th January 2015

Staff and students were celebrating this week by the gaining of one unconditional and six conditional Oxbridge offers.

Last year’s head girl, Freya Lawson, received an unconditional offer from Emmanuel College, Cambridge to read Modern and Medieval Languages whilst conditional offers for Cambridge were given to Tilly Harding (Natural Sciences), Emilie Facon (Economics at St Catherine’s), Sonja Rijnen (Human Social and Political Sciences at Newnham) and Jessica Young (History at Trinity).  Oxford offers were made to Tom Evans to read Biological Sciences at Hertford College and Josie Smith to read History at Merton.

Johanna Barker, the College’s Oxbridge Co-ordinator said “I am very proud of the effort of all our students who applied for Oxford and Cambridge and particularly delighted for these seven who have received offers”.

Richard Markham, Principal, commented “their success is clearly rooted in their diligence and hard work, but is also the product of excellent guidance from their teachers.  It is heartening that Oxford and Cambridge clearly value the IB Diploma and are prepared to make offers for the full range of courses”.
