Forest celebrates another successful year of University applications

24 January 2020

Forest School is delighted to announce that six pupils have this year received offers to study at the University of Cambridge and the University of Oxford in line with the school’s strong Oxbridge admissions record.

The five pupils holding offers to study at the University of Cambridge include Thomas Adolphus (Natural Sciences) Ella Andrews (Architecture) Oliver Brett (Maths) Saul Samuels Moselle (Modern and Medieval Languages) Naphysa Awuah (Human, Social and Political Science) and Eleanor Horn who is holding an offer to study History at the University of Oxford.

These offers from Oxbridge colleges form part of another successful year of University applications, supported by the strength and depth of our Next Steps Programme.  Forest pupils are also holding offers to study Medicine as well as wide range of subjects from Zoology to Computing to Theology, Marine Biology and Politics.  Orin Jacob Syer is also holding four scholarship offers for highly competitive Music Conservatoires. In addition, a number of Forest pupils have applied to overseas institutions such as Harvard, Princetown and the Duke University in the United States, with decisions expected in the Spring.

Overall, 134 Year 13 pupils have made applications through UCAS and, at the time of writing, 90% are already holding at least one offer with further good news expected in the coming months. It is also exciting to see our students applying for the increasingly popular degree level apprenticeships at prestigious companies.

We are immensely proud of all that our Year 13 pupils have already achieved.
