As the final deadline arrives for applications into this year’s UCAS and with it any remaining decisions about what to study and where are committed to paper, we are delighted to report that our students have already started receiving some wonderfully tempting offers.
In particular, Oxford and Cambridge Universities have just simultaneously announced theirs, and our congratulations go to Wolff Lambert (Classics at Oxford), William Emery (Music at Oxford, an open offer underwritten by St Hugh’s College), Emily Barker (Mathematics at Churchill College, Cambridge), Abigail Crane (Natural sciences at Homerton College, Cambridge) and William Clarke (History and politics at Girton College, Cambridge).
While many of our students must continue to wait for now, some have already received offers from all the universities to which they have applied, including Pierre Blackburn, Stuart Evans, Alyssa Hedley, Abraham Hew, Jake Jay, Ben Kelly, Millie Leith, Tom Lomas, Caragh Paul, Georgie Saunders, Kieran Saxton, Will Wells and Oliver Whiting. Others have heard good news for some of the more unusual degrees, for example: Gabby Harvey has an offer for a degree at Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama, in singing, which is very unusual for someone so young; Harrison Perkins is choosing between music (saxophone) at Trinity or King’s London; Rachel Prowse has unconditional offers from St Andrews and Edinburgh for French; James Briggs, with his career in mind, has an unconditional offer for police studies at York St John; and Charlotte Sheehan and Nancy King have secured recalls on the long haul to drama school.
What diversity – what imagination!
