Superb Oxbridge results for 2017-18 Reach Higher students

January 2018


Nine out of our 21 Oxbridge applicants won places when the letters were sent out a fortnight ago - twice the average success rate. We are once again neck-and-neck with the best-performing and most selective schools in the country.

Almost all our students now have offers from one of the UK's most selective universities, including LSE, UCL, Edinburgh and Durham.

Oxbridge offers included ones for Medicine, Maths, History & Politics, Geography, Economics, Philosophy, Modern and Medieval Languages and Natural Sciences.

Our success rate of 43% is in line with the highest performing independent schools in the country.

Well done one and all - and huge thanks to everyone who supported these terrific young people.

Sam Harland from Hall Cross Academy in Doncaster won an offer to return to Trinity Hall, Cambridge (hosts of one of our summer schools) to study History & Politics
