Kings Priory School students Eleanor On, Cameron Ramsay and Rebecca Murta who have secured places at Oxford and Cambridge Universities, respectively.

Kings Priory School pupils Eleanor On, Cameron Ramsay and Rebecca Murta will head to the prestigious Universities in September after receiving A*s and As across the board in their relevant subject areas.

Eleanor will read Philosophy Politics and Economics (PPE) at University College, Oxford, after receiving four A grades.

Rebecca is heading to Murray Edwards College to read Natural Science. Cameron will read Computer Science at Gonville and Caius College, both at Cambridge after each receiving four A* grades.

Kings Priory School, which had a 99 per cent A*-E success rate, saw almost a third of pupils receive A*-A grades with over 70 per cent attaining A*-C.

Amongst other successes were Isla Gibson, who is heading to Durham University to study Chinese, Geetika Gupta (AAAA) who will read Chemical Engineering at the University of Manchester and Emily Mulligan (AAB) who will be studying Medicine through the Newcastle University Partners programme.

More than 70 per cent of pupils celebrated by accepting their first choice offer, most of who are headed for a place at a prestigious Russell Group University.

Principal, Philip Sanderson, said: “It was a pleasure to see so many young people accepting their first choice University and we are very pleased with the achievement of all of our pupils.

“It was also very encouraging to be able to celebrate such a huge diversity of success, with pupils headed for careers in medicine, science and mathematics as well as English Literature, Music and Philosophy, Politics and Economics.

“Many congratulations to them and a sincere thank you to staff and families for their continued support.”

It was also a successful day for AS results, with a large number of A grades for Year 12 pupils.

Mr Sanderson added: “These extremely positive AS Level results will really help to boost the confidence of our Sixth Form pupils as they head into their final year at Kings Priory School, especially with UCAS applications, personal statements and other interviews on the horizon.”

There are still a small number of places available to start the Sixth Form at Kings Priory School in September 2016.
