Fantastic Oxbridge Success

29 January 2021

NGHS offers our warmest congratulations to SIX of our Year 13 students who have secured Oxbridge offers this year. This is the highest number for a number of years and comes in a year when competition has never been greater owing to students in the year above having to reapply after last year's grading process.

Oxbridge offers have been received by:

Student College Course
Edith Charlesworth Selwyn College, Cambridge History of Art
Sophie Griffith St Edmund's Hall, Oxford Earth Sciences
Ella Johnson Queens College, Cambridge English
Ellie Micklewright Hertford College, Oxford Geography
Molly Reade Murray Edwards College, Cambridge Mathematics
Geraldine Slater Worcester College, Oxford Theology

It is particularly pleasing that such a variety of courses across almost every teaching subject / faculty will be studied. 

This year's Year 13 cohort are receiving a wealth of offers from universities across the country as well as apprenticeships and their resilience and resolve in the current situation is outstanding.
