In terms of university entrance in the light of our A Level results, of those boys holding conditional offers to study at UK universities, just under 90% secured their firm or insurance places, the vast majority at their first-choice institution. This is all the more impressive as 93% of the firm offers were to one of The Times Top 20 ranked universities. Just under 50 places were secured at five of the most prestigious universities in the country: Bristol, Cambridge, Durham, Exeter and Oxford.
Dr Jon Cox noted: “I am absolutely delighted that our talented students have emerged with such excellent results. These have allowed them to secure places on the most competitive courses at the leading institutions in the country: all the remarkable at a time when the media has been filled with foreboding for this year’s students with lower grades and increased competition for university places. The fact that 11 of our boys have secured places to study Medicine illustrates the levels at which our students continue to perform. Our boys can now harbour the most ambitious of aspirations and I look forward to following their progress with interest and excitement.”
