Forest School is delighted to announce that nine 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 three pupils holding offers to study at the University of Oxford include Keelin Gallagher to study Spanish, Oliver Banks to study PPE and Daisy Day-Fawcett who is holding an offer to study History.

The six pupils holding offers from the University of Cambridge include Priyasha Sen (Medicine) Elise Nwokedi (English) Coco Wheeler (Architecture) Michael Sharp (Chemical Engineering) and Old Foresters Gwen Jones (Human Social and Political Sciences) and Bonnie Cheung (Veterinary Sciences).

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 holding offers to study Medicine as well as a wide range of subjects across the Arts, Humanities and Sciences and with one of our music scholars, Lucas Boardman, holding three scholarship offers for highly competitive Music Conservatoires. In addition, Forest pupils have applied to overseas institutions such as the University of London Institute in Paris and US Universities including Stamford, Cornell and Columbia with decisions expected in the Spring.

Overall, 135 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 increasing numbers of students applying for apprenticeships at prestigious companies as part of their talent growth programmes.

We are immensely proud of all that our Year 13 pupils have already achieved, and they are on track to follow on from last year’s excellent A-Level results when 50% of all grades awarded to Forest pupils were an A or A* and the highest number of A* grades were achieved since 2011.
