Many congratulations to the 18 Wellingtonians (12 into Oxford and 6 into Cambridge) who have recently been offered places to study at the UK’s two leading higher education institutions.
With competition for places, both from national and international candidates, stronger than ever at both universities, it is fantastic news that well over 100 Wellingtonians have now been offered places over the past five years. With over 30 pupils also moving on to US universities each year, many to Ivy League institutions, there has never been a better time to be a Wellington College Sixth Former in terms of success rates to elite universities.
It is particularly pleasing to see such a wide spread of courses across Maths, Engineering, Earth Sciences, Japanese, Classics, PPE and many other subject areas. Every department has enjoyed success.
Equally inspiring is the generous and positive contribution these Wellingtonians have made to the wider life of the school. Among the pupils who have gained success you will find members of the College Choir, Symphony Orchestra and A capella group; a member of the National Debating winning team; a singer-songwriter who wrote and produced her own musical, and representatives from the College 1st XI Hockey (Girls) who have won three National titles. Well done to them all!
