Students Celebrate 2010 Oxbridge Offers
Monday, 25 January 2010
Eighteen students from Bolton School's Sixth Form are celebrating after receiving offers to study at Oxford and Cambridge universities from Autumn 2010. Nine students from the Boys' Division and nine students from the Girls' Division have been offered places at the prestigious institutions.
In the Boys' Division three of the offers are unconditional and made to boys who sat their A Levels last year and are currently on gap years. In the Girls' Division one of the offers is unconditional - a place to study Architecture for Victoria Gramm, who gained 4 As at A Level last year. Victoria attended Bolton School for most of the senior years after she came to Britain from Russia as a young teenager and is currently studying an Art Foundation course in her gap year.
I am thrilled for the girls and their teachers. Such offers are a strong endorsement of the education that is on offer at Bolton School. I was particularly pleased to see that offers were made to study Mathematics at Oxford to two Chinese students, who came over to Britain for their A Level studies and are living locally.
Mrs Gill Richards, Headmistress of the Girls' Division
These offers are recognition of the hard work undertaken by both the students and their teachers, and I am delighted for them all. I am equally pleased for the many other students who have received offers from the UK's leading universities. In order to gain entry to the very best universities applicants must have CVs which demonstrate more than their academic potential. At Bolton School we work hard to ensure that students are exposed to a vast array of extra-curricular activities and that they leave us as self-confident young people ready to make a difference in the world.
Mr Philip Britton, Headmaster of the Boys' Division
