Record Number of Oxbridge Offers
Wednesday, 09 February 2011
A record number of students at Bolton School Boys' Division have been offered starting places at Oxford and Cambridge universities this Autumn. Ten current students and one external candidate, who is currently on a gap year, are celebrating along with successful girls from the Girls' Division.
Boys' Division Headmaster, Mr Philip Britton, said: "I am delighted for the students and their teachers. To have 10% of the cohort be offered places at these prestigious institutions is a strong endorsement of the education that is on offer at Bolton School. It was also pleasing to see that many of them are going on to study languages and sciences, subjects which, nationally, many pupils have been abandoning but are critical to the future prosperity of the country. It has also been another excellent year group in terms of students receiving offers to study at the leading Russell Group universities."
