This year, Wyke Sixth Form College celebrated a record number of students receiving offers from Oxford and Cambridge, with eight students confirming that they achieved the grades to study at two of the most prestigious universities in the world.
Bridget Allenby achieved A* A*A* A, confirming her place at the University of Oxford to study Biomedical Sciences.
Upon opening her results, Bridget said: “I’m happy and just over the moon right now. To be lucky enough to be offered one of the 40 places available on the course was a huge achievement, but to finally know I’ve got the grades I needed is an amazing feeling. I’m excited to experience being a student at Oxford which is known internationally for it’s incredible academic reputation and high standards of teaching.”
For Alice Gowland, now studying Psychology at the University of Oxford, choosing to study at Wyke was due to the additional support and academic excellence of the college: “I chose to study at Wyke for its academic excellence. I also felt that Wyke would be the best college to support my ambition of studying at Oxford. As part of the Flyers programme, I was provided with a lot of support in being an early applicant to university. My teachers gave me the encouragement and confidence in myself to work hard to achieve the results that I have today.”
