A fabulous five King’s School students have received offers from Oxford and Cambridge universities this year across a range of highly competitive subjects.
From left to right: Freddy McNulty, 18, from Congleton has won an offer from St. John’s College, Cambridge to read Mathematics. A brilliant natural mathematician, Freddy scored a perfect 100% in his AS Maths paper in the summer and now needs to get two A*s and an A with top grades in both his Step papers.
Eleanor Toms, 17, from Poynton, who got 10 A*s in her GCSEs has an offer to read Natural Sciences at Fitzwilliam College, Cambridge. A North of England Hockey player, Eleanor’s priority is to get a first class degree.
King’s captain of cricket Oliver Quinn, 18, from Macclesfield, has an open offer from Oxford to read English, meaning the university will decide which college he attends if he gets three A grades, which should be within his grasp as he achieved a stunning straight 11 A*s in his GCSEs and was highly commended in a national Cambridge University Spanish essay writing competition last year.
Freddie Hayward, 18, from Macclesfield has an offer from St. Peter’s College, Oxford to read Politics, Philosophy and Economics and hopes to develop the rowing he currently enjoys on Lake Rudyard during his university life. John Le Moignan, 19, from Whirley has an offer to read History and Politics at Jesus College, Oxford and ultimately would like to run for elected office.
Principal of King’s Sixth Form Dr. Julie Cocker said: “English, Mathematics, Science, Politics and History courses are highly sought after at Oxford and Cambridge not just by British students but increasingly by students from all over the world so these young men and women are to be very much commended for their hard work and natural abilities.”
