Ruthin School brings home top Oxbridge offers

Ruthin School is delighted that four Upper Six students have been given offers to study Oxford and Cambridge Universities next year. Summer will be reading Mathematics at St. Hugh’s College, Oxford, while Sithika is looking forward to studying Mathematics and Computer Science at Wadham College, Oxford. With an average of ten applicants per place for Mathematics and Computer Science, and nine applicants per place for Mathematics, receiving an offer is a great achievement.

Leonardo has an offer to read Natural Sciences at Corpus Christi College, Cambridge, and his classmate Sabrina will be heading to Robinson College, Cambridge, to read Mathematics. Places at Cambridge are equally competitive, with only 11% of applicants being made an offer for Mathematics, and 15% for Natural Sciences.

Sue Frencham, Head at Ruthin School, says: “We are so proud of our Upper Sixth students this year. Despite having to study a good proportion of their A levels remotely, potentially 1000s of miles away from the school, they have thrived nonetheless and demonstrated their true talents to Oxbridge Universities. Offers are flying in from the very best institutions for all our students and we never cease to be amazed at our students’ resilience and brilliance in achieving excellence despite the pressures of a global pandemic.”

A further five Ruthin students for Cambridge and three for Oxford had been invited to interview, following a good perfomance in the fiendishly difficult Admissions Assessments. Our motto of ‘Study, Thrive, Succeed’ runs through the heart of the school and is synonymous with academic success. Year on year, students achieve exceptional results to confirm acceptance at top universities in the UK and around the world, including Oxbridge places. On average, 86% of our Upper Sixth students move on to study at Russell Group institutions.

Ruthin School is an independent co-educational boarding school, offering day, weekly and full boarding experiences for students aged 11 to 19. Located in an area of outstanding natural beauty, it prides itself on being inclusive and nurturing.
