Celebrating Higher Education Successes


We are celebrating the success of eight Upper Sixth students who have achieved offers at Oxford, Cambridge and highly respected medical schools. Medicine is becoming an increasingly popular choice for KGS students with applications set to rise further in 2017/18. The chosen subjects of the Oxbridge applicants range from Classics and Mathematics to Education and Music. It has been a positive year for the School’s Sixth Form, with almost all the year group receiving at least one offer from a Russell Group university.

Mr Fitzgerald, Director of Careers and Universities, commented, “Upper Sixth students have attained places at a variety of respected universities across a wide range of academic disciplines. This is a great achievement and reflects on their hard work and determination in preparing themselves well for an incredibly demanding selection process.”

The Oxbridge successes include: Current School Captain Oliver Cole (History at Trinity College, Cambridge); Matt Pugh (Classics at Somerville College, Oxford); Rebecca Dodd (Mathematics at Christ Church College, Oxford); Jamie Bisping (Education at Homerton College, Cambridge); Lucy Roberts (Music at Jesus College, Cambridge); Nicole George (Medicine at Imperial College, London); Troy O’Dowd (Medicine at Nottingham University) and Miranda Worth (Medicine at Newcastle University).
