Bolton School Sixth Form Girls

Oxford Place for Linguist

  • KKP-4-021384-1.jpg

Emily Manock will be heading to Oxford University after achieving top grades of A*A*A*AB in her A Level examinations. She will study French at Jesus College, Oxford.

Emily, who has cerebral palsy, said: “It is very, very surreal to be leaving Bolton School but I am really excited about the future. Oxford has been brilliant in offering disability support and I now look forward to getting stuck into the reading list.”

She first considered Oxford as an option for her in Year 10 during the annual Oxford trip arranged by the School. While visiting Jesus College, she saw a student who likely also had cerebral palsy and it was at that point that she began to set her sights on Oxford.

She said, “I just completely fell in love with the place and I knew it was where I wanted to go.”
