Oxbridge Offers for Sixth Form Students

There have been celebrations in the Riley Centre as students in the Sixth Form at Bolton School received offers from the Universities of Oxford and Cambridge.

The two prestigious institutions, which are ranked among the best in the world, require applicants to stand out even before the rigorous interviews: both ask for exceptional UCAS application forms, and some subjects also require additional examinations. However, throughout this challenging and lengthy process, the School provides additional support to all students wishing to apply to Cambridge and Oxford, and this year the hard work has paid off for seven lucky Bolton School students.

In the Boys’ Division, five students were successful in their applications: Luke Cavanaugh to read English at Gonville and Caius College, Cambridge; Adam Hall to study Architecture at Jesus College, Cambridge; Akshay Pal to study Engineering at St Hilda’s College, Oxford; Tom Paterson to study Modern Foreign Languages at Selwyn College, Cambridge; and Sam Warburton to read Law at Somerville College, Oxford.

Meanwhile, two Girls’ Division students received offers: Eloise Booth to read Spanish and Portuguese at St Catharine’s College, Cambridge; and Kat Gramm to study Medicine at Brasenose College, Oxford.

Receiving offers from Oxford and Cambridge is an excellent achievement for all seven Sixth Form students. Now they must set their sights on achieving the grades needed to accept their places: the School wishes them the best of luck for their upcoming A Level examinations!

Old Girl Mehranguiz Mokri, who left the Sixth Form following her A Levels last summer, has also been successful in her application to Exeter College, Oxford, where she will read Law.
