Cambridge offers for 4 Wilmslow students


Four high-flying sixth form students at Wilmslow High School are celebrating after receiving conditional offers to study at Cambridge next autumn.

Jonathan Shaw, who has been offered a place to study Natural Sciences, commented: "I am thrilled with my offer after the years of preparation and work which contributed to it."

After receiving her offer to study History and Politics, Georgia Brown said: "After years of hard work, weeks perfecting my personal statement, and many hours preparing for admissions tests and interviews, it's amazing to see it all pay off."

Matthew Fox has been offered a place to study Chemical Engineering. He commented: "I feel very lucky to have received an offer, and am immensely grateful to my teachers and peers for encouraging and supporting me throughout the process. I would advise anyone who feels they have a chance to give it a go."

Despite only being in Year 12, Olivia French (right) has gained an offer to study Mathematics. She said: I was so pleased to have received an offer; I really didn't expect to get one this year! A huge thanks to all my teachers who have supported me throughout my time at Wilmslow High School and helped make this opportunity possible."

Helen Cook, Post-16 Guidance Manager at Wilmslow High School, said "We would like to wish all of our Year 13 students well as they embark on their final months of A Level study."

Congrats to these four. Especially Olivia as this is a newsworthy achievement. But what about all the other students’ achievements? There are other universities other worthy career choices. I understand that when private schools produce oxbridge candidates, they want to show parents you get what you pay for but this should not be the defining factor for a state funded school. There are plenty of universities that excel in areas where oxbridge doesn’t. Why perpetuate elitism at the expense of the other students?
