FIVE super bright Sixth Form students at Solihull School have been offered conditional Oxbridge places for this autumn.
Georgina May-Hart has been awarded a place to read Portuguese and Spanish at St Hugh’s, Oxford; Thomas Daniels, Spanish and English at Selwyn College Cambridge; Lewis Johnston, Medicine at Keble College, Oxford and Billie Delpino, Biochemistry at Brasenose College, Oxford.
And Gwynneth Horbury, who gained her A Levels and decided to take a gap year, applied to Cambridge this year and has won a place to study Education at Pembroke College.
Headmaster David EJJ Lloyd at the co-educational independent day school on Warwick Road said: “I am thrilled for our students who have all worked extremely hard to achieve their Oxbridge success. Credit goes to the teachers – for helping candidates through the very demanding selection process.”
Solihull School secured a 100 per cent pass rate in last year’s A Level results, with almost 50 percent of passes achieved A* or A grades.
In September last year Solihull School and Saint Martin’s School announced plans to merge bringing the two schools together to create a larger Solihull School, which will provide dedicated early years, infant, junior and senior facilities on two campuses.
Solihull Senior School will be located on Warwick Road Campus and Solihull Preparatory School on Saint Martin’s Campus from September 2020. The merger legally completed on Monday January 6 2020.
