Oxbridge offers for Stamford students

Three students at the Stamford Endowed Schools have received offers from Oxford and Cambridge Universities.

Head Girl Holly Farrow, of Stamford High School, aims to read Engineering at Emmanuel College, Cambridge. From Stamford School, Charlie Kidd has received an offer to study Maths at Somerville College, Oxford, and Jonathan Mason has been offered a place to read Chemistry at Jesus College, Cambridge.

Will Phelan, Principal of the Stamford Endowed Schools, said: ‘Our students have worked tirelessly to prepare for their Oxbridge entrance examinations and it is testament to their hard work and dedication that they have been rewarded with these offers. They should be immensely proud of their achievements. These will be the first of many offers which our Stamfordians will be receiving at a wide variety of universities and courses.

Our focus at the Stamford Endowed Schools is on preparing young people for the jobs and priorities of the future, and I am delighted that these offers from Oxford and Cambridge reflect the passion and enthusiasm that our pupils develop for pursing these vital skills at the highest level. My congratulations to them.'
