Oxbridge offers

Congratulations to George Cowperthwaite, Genevieve Thornton and Munirah Patel, who have received conditional offers from Oxford and Cambridge. George Cowperthwaite has an offer from Girton College, Cambridge to read Mathematics; Genevieve Thornton  has an offer from  Exeter College, Oxford to read History, and Munirah Patel has an offer from Lady Margaret Hall, Oxford to read Chemistry.

The Headmaster Andrew Johnson said: “We are delighted by their success, which is thoroughly deserved. All three have demonstrated total commitment to their chosen subjects as well as playing a very full part in the life of the school.”

Preparation for Oxbridge interviews begins each January, when potential candidates are assigned an academic mentor for their chosen course of study, who encourages and guides further independent study and provides interview practice. Formal mock interviews then take place in November.
