It is with immense pride and delight that Woodbridge School can confirm that six of its students have received Oxbridge offers – making this one of the most successful years in recent times for our students.
Four Year 13 students received offers from Oxford University: Hannah has an offer to read Ancient and Modern History at Oriel, Oxford, Oliver will read Classics at New College, Kitt has an offer to read Law at Magdalen and Amy has an offer to read French and Modern Greek at St Peter’s.
Two Year 13 students have received offers from Cambridge University: Maggie for Theology, Religion and the Philosophy of Religion at Murray Edwards, and Katie has an offer to read Veterinary Medicine at Homerton College.
Our joint Head of School, Oliver, commented, “I was absolutely thrilled to receive an offer to read Classics! There is no way that I could have achieved this without the tireless support of Miss Wright, both as Head of Oxbridge and as my Latin and Greek teacher for so many years.”
Speaking about her offer to read Ancient and Modern History at Oxford, Hannah commented,
“I am absolutely delighted to have an offer for my dream course at Oxford! The application process was hard work, but also very enjoyable. I am extremely grateful to our Oxbridge coordinator, Miss Wright, who also helped me with Ancient History, and to the Head of History, Mr Smith. Woodbridge School has shaped me as a person and I owe a great deal to everyone here.”
Talking about her offer to read Veterinary Medicine at Homerton College, Katie commented, “I was surprised, delighted and thrilled to receive an offer! I’m now looking forward to focusing and working hard to achieve the grades needed; I’m very thankful for the help and support I’ve always received from the teachers at Woodbridge School.”
Miss Norman, Head of School commented,
“This is such wonderful news, the entire community of Woodbridge School shares the delight and celebration of such an amazing accomplishment for each and every one of these Year 13 students. It’s testament not only to the students’ hard work, commitment, focus and dedication to their studies, but it also underlines the ethos and values of Woodbridge School, where all of our students work with teachers to find their individual pathway, to discover and nurture their talent and passions, so they can be the best version of themselves today, and in the future.”
Miss Wright, Head of Academic Scholars and Oxbridge, said,
“Each year getting in to Oxford and Cambridge becomes more and more competitive, and I am delighted for our offer-holders. They have taken up all the opportunities offered by Woodbridge’s FitzGerald Programme for academic high-fliers, including successful entries into seven essay competitions last year, while also contributing enormously to the school in drama, music, debating, the Cadet Force and art. I am immensely proud of them all.”
