Herts and Essex High School students celebrate Oxbridge success
Eight Year 13 students at the Herts and Essex High School in Bishop's Stortford have received offers from Oxbridge.
The sixth-formers are heading to Oxford or Cambridge to study English literature, French and Spanish, medicine, natural sciences, chemistry, economics, management and classics.
A spokeswoman for the Warwick Road secondary said: “One prospective doctor has already received an offer from Newcastle University. In line with the application process timeframe, the five other prospective doctors plus one dentist are waiting to hear whether they have been successful.
“We applaud our many students who are keen to enter the healthcare professions. This year students have also applied for optometry, nursing, midwifery, social work, physiotherapy and diagnostic radiography and imaging.
“Many other students have been successful in securing offers from competitive institutions, including maths at Warwick, law at Exeter, history at Bristol, geography at Durham and biomedical sciences (with placement) at Bath.”
Students are also studying a range of creative subjects and the spokeswoman added: “For an increasing number of our sixth-formers, apprenticeships represent an exciting alternative to university.”
