Celebrating a raft of Oxbridge offers
A SCHOOL in Hillingdon is celebrating after nine pupils received ‘Oxbridge’ offers.
The students from St Helen’s School in Northwood have had offers to study at Oxford or Cambridge universities in September.
It means 14 per cent of the Year 13 students at the independent girls’ school in Eastbury Road are set to enter the famous universities after writing successful applications and passing the notoriously tough interview process.
All but one of the nine have been given conditional offers which mean they must pass their A-level exams at the required grades to make good the Oxbridge offers. Four students at St Helen’s have received offers from Cambridge, to study English, Medicine and Natural Sciences at St John’s, Emmanuel, Pembroke and Corpus Christi Colleges.
Five students have received offers from Oxford, to study Law, Classical Archaeology and Ancient History, Music, Biological Sciences and Human Sciences at Queen’s, Somerville, St Catherine’s and Keble Colleges.
