There has been a flurry of really good Univerity offers coming in for our Year 13 students in recent days, and amongst the most notable is the offer for Mary Lykova to study Art at the famous Ruskin School, Oxford - one of the top institutes for art in the world.

Not only are the offers to excellent universities, but also they reflect a wide and fascinating range of interests.  To name a few: Durham to read Geology for Rory Bardner; King's College, London for Izzy Barton to read War Studies and History; King's College London for Asia Raspapova to read International Relations; Birmingham for Mimi Hadley-Piggins to read Modern Languages; Sheffield for Pheobe Joslin to read Chinese Studies.  Some students are still waiting to hear all their offers and will be informed in the next few weeks.

We are delighted for all our students who have received offers from the universities of their choice and, especially, for Mary.  Mary joined the school in Year 12 and has made the most of the excellent facilities in the 150 building, under the guidance of Mr Main and Mr Minns.  

However, whilst she will be working hard to ensure she gets the required grades, she is also working on a commissioned painting of the Exmoor Run, which will be displayed in the Headmaster's office.
