High achieving Cronton Sixth Form students have celebrated an extremely successful start to the year with offers from the University of Oxford and the University of Cambridge.
Throughout a rigorous application process, the exceptional students have shown dedication, commitment, and hard work alongside the support of the unique programmes on offer at Cronton and are delighted to have received offers to the prestigious universities.
Freya Richardson-Fay, previously from Saints Peter and Paul Catholic High School has been offered a place at the University of Cambridge to study Geography, Jacob Powell, from St Chads Catholic and Church of England High School has been offered a place at the University of Oxford to study History, Max Barnes, previously from Ormiston Chadwick Academy has received an offer from the University of Oxford to study History and Ben Cooper, from Saints Peter and Paul Catholic High School has been offered a place at the University of Oxford to study English Literature.
This success has been further strengthened by outstanding Cronton students who have received offers for prestigious Oxbridge schemes this year. This includes five students starting on the Cambridge STEM SMART Programme, thirteen students who have been accepted onto the Cambridge Shadowing Scheme and students who have also gained places on the University of Oxford OxNet Programme and the University of Cambridge Lucy Cavendish Programme.
All the successful students have been part of the outstanding Prestigious University Programme at the College, a high achievers programme which last year saw students receive 22 offers for Oxford, Cambridge, Medicine, Dentistry and Veterinary courses and over 500 offers from Russell Group Universities. The keen students have also been part of many other programmes at Cronton, including Professional Studies Programmes, to gain more knowledge and experience in STEM, law and teaching and they have developed leadership qualities within the Student Leadership Team.
Freya said, “The programmes at Cronton helped to signpost me to lots of the enrichment activities that made me stand out during the application process. Over my time at Cronton I have taken part in summer schools, webinars, volunteering and work experience.”
Dan Adams, Head of A Levels at Cronton Sixth Form, said, “We are extremely proud of all of the students who have received offers at the University of Oxford and the University of Cambridge and will continue to work closely with our students to help them to achieve the best results in their upcoming exams. We are delighted with the success the students have received so far and are looking forward to celebrating more university achievements over the next few months, including the students who have applied for prestigious degrees in medicine, veterinary and dentistry.”
