10 Forest pupils receive Oxbridge offers

Forest School is delighted to announce that 10 pupils have this year received offers to study at the University of Cambridge and the University of Oxford.

This continues the School’s excellent Oxbridge admissions record, where the ratio of Oxbridge applications to offers made is over 41% – exactly twice the national average and exceeding the figure achieved by other schools in the independent sector.

The six pupils holding offers to study at the University of Oxford include Alex Coombs, who is holding an offer to study Archaeology and Anthropology, and Jessica Ross who is holding an offer to study Biology.

Finn Hardwick, Charlie Willis and Evelyn Atmore (who took a gap year and applied in 2015) all hold offers to study Classics while Mia Portman holds an offer to study Classics with English.

The four pupils holding offers from the University of Cambridge include Armand Feuilleaubois (Mathematics), Tanya Kundu (English), Jonathan Smith (Engineering) and Head Boy Callum Thomson (Human, Social and Political Science).

The Forest Oxbridge offers form part of yet another successful year of university applications. Overall, 134 applications have been made through UCAS and our pupils are holding offers to study a variety of subjects at some of the best universities in the United Kingdom, Canada and the United States – as of Tuesday 2 February 2016, nine out of 10 responses to Forest pupils have been offers.

Forest Year 13 pupils will be hoping to follow on from last year’s excellent A-Level results when 80% of grades awarded to pupils were A*, A or B, and almost half were A* or A.
