Cam­bridge awaits for top stu­dents

Oldham Advertiser - - #OLDHAMLIVE -

TWO bright sparks have man­aged to se­cure them­selves places at Cam­bridge Univer­sity.

Cromp­ton House pupils Tom Up­ton and Anna Turmeau have both been of­fered con­di­tional places at the pres­ti­gious univer­sity.

Anna, 17, from Shaw, hopes to read medicine at Christ’s Col­lege.

She is now work­ing to­wards her A-lev­els for which she is pre­dicted two A*s and two As.

Tom, 19, has been of­fered a seat at Churchill Col­lege to study En­gi­neer­ing.

He left Cromp­ton House with four A* grades in physics, chem­istry, maths and fur­ther maths last sum­mer and de­cided to take a gap year be­fore ap­ply­ing for univer­sity.

Head­teacher Karl Newell said: “I am de­lighted for th­ese two hard-work­ing stu­dents.

“With their aca­demic suc­cess, to­gether with their vol­un­tary work and de­sire to push them­selves per­son­ally they are great role mod­els for the rest of the school.

“They both took ad­van­tage of what we have to of­fer here at Cromp­ton House.”
