Congratulations to the seven Sixth Formers who have received offers so far to study at Oxford and Cambridge next year. This is the highest number of successful pupils from one cohort since 2008 at Dean Close and the breadth of subjects is impressive. In total, 21 pupils made applications from a cohort of 92, with 16 called for interview.

At Oxford the students have offers to study Economics & Management, Music, Biochemistry, PPE and Engineering. The Cambridge offers are for Medicine and Geography.

Headmaster, Bradley Salisbury, said: “We are delighted that so many of our girls and boys have given themselves the opportunity to study at these prestigious universities once they have left Dean Close. We work hard to ensure that all our pupils stretch themselves academically and achieve their potential”.
