Outstanding news regarding university offers.
To earn a place at either of the UK’s leading universities is a tremendous accomplishment and a testament to a huge amount of hard work, especially with competition for places greater than ever.
Obtaining an offer of a place from Oxford and Cambridge is never easy. To get to that point requires a huge investment of energy and intellectual commitment over a long period of time. The Lorettonians who have been offered places deserve huge congratulations, just as those several who aimed high and put in the effort for a different result also deserve praise. This year has been very strong on the Oxbridge front and all those involved in the process - pupils and staff - have given the Loretto community much to be proud of.
The pupils, including one OL, are set to study a broad range of subjects, with the offers as follows:
Oxford : Jonny Cunningham, Engineering (Brasenose), Daniel Dalland, Mathematics (Magdalen), Lachlann Hinley, History (St John’s).
Cambridge : Robert Ogilvy, Engineering (Emmanuel), Yale Pan, Mathematics (Homerton).
Many congratulations to Yannick Artigolle who has a golf scholarship to study at Northwestern University, Illinois and Lorna Crawford has a hockey scholarship to St Joseph's University in Philadelphia. Both Lorna and Yannick also achieved excellent U.S. university entrance examination (SATs) results.
The UCAS (Universities and Colleges Admissions Service) deadline is not until 15th Jan, but ambitious Lorettonians have already had more than 180 offers to study at UK universities - some are unconditional. This is outstanding and very exciting. Our congratulations to you all!
The diverse range of subjects include - English Language and Literature, Modern Languages, History of Art, Geography, History, Economics, Sciences, Mathematics, Criminology, Law, Zoology, Politics, Journalism, International Business, Urban Planning, Fashion, Accounting…etc
