Three into Cambridge University!!

Aug 24, 2022

Three cheers for three of our students who are starting at Cambridge University in a month’s time, we are massively proud of them and their considerable talents. We are also rather proud of ourselves as each of them obtained A*A*A* in their A levels and we like to think our teaching and guidance may have helped them fulfil their potential!

Sam says:

“Before I came to WT I was totally lost in school, my attendance was well below average and I was really struggling. However thanks to their amazing, inspiring tutors and method of understanding my needs, I have been able to find what I want to do and get into my dream university. I have had an incredible 5 years in and around the college and I know I would be nowhere near where I am today without everyone here!”

It is unusual for us to get three students into Cambridge (or Oxford) in one year, not only because competition is so fierce, but also because we have a very small cohort of 20-25 students applying to university each year. In terms of a successful Oxbridge application, there is no doubt that along with our exceptional guidance, the students themselves need to demonstrate exceptional academic ability as well as to stay on track throughout the gruelling application process.

This year an astounding 15% of our university applicants have taken up places at Cambridge, which makes this a special year, but in general our university destinations are second to none, even though we are not an academically selective sixth form. This year 52% of our students have placed at the UK’s top Russell Group universities and 67% have gone to their first choice university, other highlights of which we are equally proud include:

  • International Relations & History at LSE
  • Medicine at Newcastle
  • Engineering at Nottingham, Loughborough and City
  • French & Film at Bristol
  • Filmmaking at Nottingham Trent
  • And a host of other fantastic courses…
