Oxbridge of­fers dou­ble at school

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - SCHOOL REPORT -

MORE than a dozen stu­dents at a Bea­cons­field sec­ondary school have been of­fered Oxbridge places.

Bea­cons­field High School was cel­e­brat­ing af­ter hear­ing 13 stu­dents re­ceived of­fers to study at Ox­ford or Cam­bridge.

The school, in Wattleton Road, had six stu­dents of­fered places last year.

Head­teacher An­nette France said: “It has never been my view that Oxbridge col­leges are the only des­ti­na­tions for very able stu­dents but the fact our num­bers have more than dou­bled does re­flect the high as­pi­ra­tions and achieve­ments of our stu­dents as well as the qual­ity of their UCAS per­sonal state­ments and our ref­er­ences. How­ever, it is im­por­tant to rec­og­nize the qual­ity of all our stu­dents’ ap­pli­ca­tions to the uni­ver­si­ties of their choice, and their sheer hard work which leads to them hav­ing choices.”
