2012 University Successes

Following the excitement and celebrations of A Level results day, we have now been able to take stock of where our talented pupils are destined.  Between them they had amassed a dozen Oxbridge offers and we are delighted that every single one of these pupils secured the grades they needed.  Five pupils are off to Oxford and seven to Cambridge:

Anna Hubbard   Modern Languages   Keble
Linnet Kaymer   History   Merton
Geraint Kiff   Modern Languages   Pembroke
Calum Lomas   Economics & Management   St Hugh’s
Georgia Watson   Classics
Harriet Bartlett   Vet Science   Gonville & Caius
Eleanor Flaherty   Geography   Selwyn
Deanna Green   Theology   Queens’
Alison Harvey   Modern  Languages   St John’s
Lorcan Murphy   Engineering   Christ’s
Stephanie Posner   Classics   Jesus
Ben Yelverton   Natural Sciences   St Catherine’s

This year it was very gratifying to see so many of our students getting their first choice University places.  Most of our pupils are off to Russell Group universities, with Durham, Warwick and the London Colleges all featuring heavily as popular destinations.

Once again, there is also a significant number of Bancroftians who are progressing to study medicine, dentistry or vet science:  an impressive sixteen pupils!

Good luck to all of these Old Bancroftians who are about to embark on this exciting next stage of their lives.
