A Record Oxbridge Offer Year for Merchants

3rd February 2018

Congratulations to the nine students from the Boys’ and Girls’ Schools who have received conditional offers of places to study at the UK’s two leading higher education institutions, Oxford and Cambridge. This marks a record year for Oxbridge success and with competition for places increasing, both from national and international candidates, it signifies a great achievement for Merchant Taylors’ Schools.

At the Boys’ School both Max Cadman and Matthew Johnson received offers from Oxford to study Physics and Biochemistry respectively. Five boys received offers from Cambridge – Tom Barker-Weinberger (History); James Redpath (Classics); Nick Sweeney (Land Economy); Cameron Millen (Economics) and Daniel Slater (Natural Sciences).

At the Girls’ School Rebecca Southwart has been awarded a conditional place at Trinity College, Oxford to study Chemistry and another girl hopes to go to Fitzwilliam College, Cambridge to study Land Economy.

Headmaster Deiniol Williams and Headmistress Louise Robinson were both delighted that so many students have secured Oxbridge offers along with the many other students securing their first choice university. They commented, “Such offers are testimony to the hard work and ability of our students. They have been supported by an expert team of staff who have guided everyone through the rigorous application and interview processes required for these top academic institutions.
“We wish our students every success in their examinations this summer and will support them all the way to secure these offers.”
