Oxbridge Success


Over 10 per cent of our Upper Sixth cohort have received an offer from either Oxford or Cambridge.

We are delighted that twelve of our Upper Sixth students have secured offers from Oxbridge, with their chosen subjects ranging from Economics and Modern Languages to Egyptology & Ancient Near Eastern Studies and Human, Social & Political Sciences. It has been a successful year for Kingston Grammar School’s Sixth Form with almost all the year group receiving at least one offer from a Russell Group university.

Mr A Fitzgerald, Director of Careers and Universities, commented, 

“Twelve KGS students have attained places at Oxford and Cambridge 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 a demanding selection process.”

Mr Lehec added,

“This year’s Upper Sixth have surpassed themselves with their success in university applications,” he said. “Competition, as always, was exceptionally fierce, and these students did incredibly well to win places. We wish them, and the whole year group, the best of luck as they work to secure the A Level grades necessary to meet the conditions of their offers.”

The successful applicants were: Niamh Cullinane (English Language & Literature at Hertford College, Oxford); Rachel Ibbetson (History at St. Catherine’s College, Oxford); Kezia Milligan (Egyptology & Ancient Near Eastern Studies at St John’s College, Oxford); Alex Saoulis (Physics at St Peter’s College, Oxford); Sophia Shafiee (Classics at Lady Margaret Hall, Oxford); William Vine (Mathematics at St. Hugh’s College, Oxford); Emily Bertin (Veterinary Science (deferred to 2017) at Fitzwilliam College, Cambridge); Alborz Farahati (Modern Languages at Homerton College, Cambridge); Finn Harman (Economics at Jesus College, Cambridge); Hazel Scurr (Geography at Jesus College, Cambridge); Julian Style (Human, Social & Political Sciences at Christ’s College, Cambridge); Maya Yousif (Education with English & Drama at Homerton College, Cambridge).
