Oxbridge Success for 16 students

In what has been a challenging twelve months for all students, we are delighted to confirm that 13 of our Upper Sixth Formers achieved Oxbridge offers for 2021 entry. This is a great achievement for the students and a milestone moment during their sixth form years.

The process for preparing these applicants is a structured one that is driven by Whitgift’s Head of Higher Education, Mr Alcock. It takes a great deal of energy and effort from a wide range of tutors and considerable focus, dedication and enthusiasm from the applicants themselves.

In addition to the pupils supported by the School, for the past few years Whitgift has partnered with the Bolingbroke Academy to support their Oxbridge Admissions process. A handful of the Acaemy’s pupils took part in our preparation programme, with mock interviews taking place in the same way they do for Whitgift Students. We were pleased to have been advised that three students at Bolingbroke achieved offers for 2021 entry. Ms Orchin, Assistant Principal - Director of Sixth Form from Bolingbroke wrote to let us know the good news and also commented “The selflessness of you and your staff in assisting students from outside of your own school speaks volumes of the charitable, compassionate ethos and culture at Whitgift. My sincere thanks to all of you for your kindness and efforts.”

All at Whitgift are proud to have been a small part of their successful journey and wish all these students the very best for the future.
