Head of School, Madeleine Pinto, has been offered a place to read Classics at St Hilda’s, Oxford; Alex Piggot has received an offer from Merton College, Oxford to read History and George Ryan has been successful in securing an unconditional place to read Biological Sciences at Lady Margaret Hall, Oxford.
Yuki Kimura, who came to King’s from Japan when she was in Y7, has an offer to read Philosophy, Politics and Economics (PPE) at St John’s College, Oxford, which is one of the most competitive and sought after courses available in the UK. Finally, Adam Hatoum has been offered a place at Robinson College, Cambridge, to study Medicine.
Head of Sixth Form Academic, Francis Young, commented, ““Places at Oxford and Cambridge are increasingly competitive. This is a superb achievement for the five students and a testimony to their hard work and dedication.”
All of these students have been educated at King’s Ely for many years with over 40 school years between them and all of their teachers who have supported and nurtured them have been hugely proud to hear of this exciting news.
Director of Higher Education Guidance, Gill Smith, added, “This is another successful year for all our higher education candidates and I’m delighted that these five students have obtained offers for such keenly contested places”.
