Sixth Form Celebrates Ten Oxbridge Offers
Friday, 23 January 2015
Pupils in Bolton School’s Sixth Form have been celebrating after receiving offers from the universities of Cambridge and Oxford. As two of the best universities in the country, these institutions call for outstanding UCAS application forms and even additional examinations for some subjects, and operate a stringent interview process. However, the School provides additional support to all Oxbridge applicants, and this year ten Sixth Form pupils have been successful.
Four girls have been offered Oxbridge places: Than Dar to study Medicine at St Catharine’s College, Cambridge; Natasha Hall and Sarah Richards to read Classics at Cambridge, in Downing College and Corpus Christi College respectively; and Katie Hurt to study Physics at Corpus Christi College, Oxford.
Old Girls Annabel Ault and Leda Hadjigeorgiou, who both left in 2014, have also received offers from the University of Oxford based on the grades achieved in their A Levels last year. Annabel will study Geography at Hertford College, while Leda plans to read Classical Archaeology and Ancient History at Oriel College.
In the Boys’ Division, six students have received offers, all from the University of Cambridge: Sohail Daniel and Shyam Dhokia to study medicine at Caius College and St John’s College respectively; School Captain Paul Greenhalgh to read Geography at Jesus College; Alex Johnson to study Engineering at Peterhouse College; Alex Lawrence to study Chemical Engineering at Emmanuel College; and Henry Mitson to read Anglo-Saxon, Norse and Celtic at Caius College.
This is a fantastic achievement for all of the students. We wish them the best of luck in achieving the grades needed to accept their places.
