"I didn’t realise it at the time, but I was greatly inspired by a group of fierce, academic women who taught me at my senior school - Bolton School Girls’ Division."

Fourteen Offers for Oxbridge Applicants

Monday, 30 January 2017

  • Oxbridge - boys and girls with offers
  • Oxbridge - girls with offers and Sue Hincks
  • Oxbridge - boys with offers

Bolton School’s Sixth Formers have been celebrating after fourteen students received offers from the Universities of Oxford and Cambridge.

These prestigious institutions, both among the best universities in the world, ask applicants to stand out even before the rigorous interviews, calling for exceptional UCAS application forms and some subjects also requiring additional examinations. However, the School provides additional support to all Cambridge and Oxford applicants throughout the gruelling process, and this year fourteen have been successful.

In the Girls’ Division, five students were successful in their Oxbridge applications: Francesca Adams to read Natural Sciences at Murray Edwards College, Cambridge; Anjali Anicatt to study History at St John’s College, Oxford; Cerys Baines to read History and Politics at Worcester College, Oxford; Kirsty Fielding to study Chemistry at Merton College, Oxford; and Shivani Manoharan to study Medicine at St Catherine’s College, Cambridge.

Nine Boys’ Division students received Oxbridge offers: Rohit Bagewadi to read Economics and Management at St Peter’s College, Oxford; Anosh Bonshahi and John Care to study Medicine at Cambridge, at St John’s College and Emmanuel College respectively; Ye Ming Chen and Andrew Lee to read Classics at Oxford, at Jesus College and Brasenose College respectively; Max Hartle to study Modern Languages (Spanish and Russian) and Adam Shine to study Engineering, both at Robinson College, Cambridge; Jack Virgin to read Mathematics at Lincoln College, Oxford; and James Whalley to study Modern Languages (German) at St Hugh’s College, Oxford.

For all fourteen students, receiving their offers is a wonderful achievement and the School wishes them the best of luck in achieving the grades needed to accept their places at Oxford and Cambridge.
