Joy at Oxbridge Offers

Sixth Form students are celebrating, after being offered places to study at the country’s top universities.

Offers for Year 13 students have started to come in from universities across the world, with others due in very soon. Prefect, Courtney Sanders is delighted to be holding an offer to read Law at St Hugh’s College, University of Oxford, while Abigail Wells has received an offer to read Human, Social and Political Sciences at Fitzwilliam College, University of Cambridge.

Courtney and Abigail’s success comes after Alex Harker, Lucy Ashfield and Tahir Khan joined the University of Cambridge in 2015, while Alice Baxter went on to Regent’s Park College, University of Oxford.

Many Sixth Form students have received offers from all five of the universities to which they have applied. In addition to Oxford and Cambridge, the universities include: Bristol, Durham, Exeter, King’s College London, London School of Economics and Political Science, Nottingham, University College London and Warwick.

Year 13 student, Jessica Wakelin, has had interviews at prestigious Ivy League universities. She has already had interviews with Harvard and Princeton, and has interviews with Yale and Columbia due very soon.

Katherine Jeffrey, Principal at New Hall School said: “We are extremely proud of our students and congratulate them on achieving offers for their first choice universities.

At New Hall, we pride ourselves on our academic achievements and the success of our Oxbridge programme which includes interview preparation sessions, Oxbridge guest lecturers and opportunities to visit both universities.”
