Ten Tipped for the Top

Date Posted: 22/01/2015 | Posted In: Latest news

Ten students from QE have won places at the universities of Oxford and Cambridge. Competition for prestigious Oxbridge places is intense with only the highest achieving students gaining offers after undergoing challenging interviews. Two of the students have unconditional offers but the other eight places are dependent upon the students attainingtop results in their final A Level exams. Eight of the QE students have offers from Cambridge University and 2 have places at Oxford. The two students off to Oxford are Max Goodall to read Music at Homerton College and Amy Robson who has an unconditional offer for Geography from St Anne’s. Of the eight going to Cambridge, Alex Sowerby, Wesley Chow and Joe Wall will study Mathematics whilst Jasmin Abbott has a highly coveted place for medicine; Jessica Dobson will read Geography, Nick Heitler’s subject is Philosophy, whilst Alex Wall’s degree will be in History; Eve Crawshaw will take up her unconditional offer for Politics, Psychology and Sociology at King’s. QE’s Principal, Tim Fisher, comments: ‘Once again QE has been highly successful in enabling outstanding young people to gain entry to Oxford and Cambridge, showing that  our students can compete with the best in the world. To have ten students with Oxbridge offers is tremendous and testament to the high calibre of the students and the work their teachers do in preparing them for the next stage in their lives. I am exceptionally proud of their achievements.’ Pictured: standing left to right: Nick Heitler, Max Goodall; seated at front left to right: Joe Wall, Alex Wall, Jessica Dobson, Wesley Chow Not pictured: Jasmin Abbott, Alex Sowerby, Amy Robson and Eve Crawshaw
