The A Level faculty at York College is delighted to announce that seven students have received offers to study at either Oxford or Cambridge University this year.
As the region’s largest A Level provider, with an A Level pass rate of 99.7% and almost 60% of students achieving high grades in 2017, this year approximately one thousand students (who study a range of A Level, Vocational, Access and Foundation Degree courses) have submitted UCAS applications. Out of this significant number of students the following seven students have excelled in securing a conditional Oxbridge place:
Lucas Davison (formerly of Ryedale School) to study PPE at Lady Margaret Hall, Oxford
Sam Holmes (formerly of Garforth Academy) to study Natural Sciences at Selwyn College, Cambridge
Bethan Law (formerly of Millthorpe School) to study Maths at Sidney Sussex College, Cambridge
Edward Mellor (formerly of Barlby High School) to study History & French at Worcester College, Oxford
Cat Robinson (formerly of St John Fisher Catholic High School, Harrogate) to study Biochemistry at Wadham College, Oxford
Hannah Rodger (formerly of Appleby Grammar School, Cumbria) to study English at Lucy Cavendish College, Cambridge
Kate Wareing (formerly of Crawshaw Academy, Pudsey) to study French & German at Queens' College, Cambridge
Miggy Biller, Head of Division for Maths and co-ordinator of Oxbridge applications at York College, says: “With a junior university ethos, the College encourages students to apply to the very top universities. These students have been given conditional offers to further their studies at the country’s most prestigious universities. We wish them every success in their examinations this summer and we will support them, as we do all our students, in the final stages of their studies.”
York College is holding an ‘Aiming High’ event on Tuesday 10th April for prospective students and their parents to find out more about applying for Oxford, Cambridge, or other highly competitive university destinations. There is no need to book, simply turn up at 6.30pm for a 7.00pm start.
