We are delighted that fourteen of our students have been successful this year in receiving offers of Oxbridge places. Of the fourteen, six have been with us since Year 7, but eight joined us from other schools for the sixth form.
Oxford and Cambridge – ranked the 1st and 2nd universities in the world this year by the Times Higher Education Supplement – remain the most demanding and competitive institutions in the UK for undergraduate admissions. Although we do not regard Oxbridge places as the sole measure of our success, we are proud that our classroom teaching, our specialist support, and our rich research-based curriculum mean that, every year, official DfE figures show that we send more students to Oxford and Cambridge than any state school in Kent, with the one exception of the super-selective Judd School in Tonbridge.
Congratulations to all fourteen – and good luck getting the grades!
