Record Oxbridge Offers

Congratulations to the class of 2022 who have secured offers to study at Oxford and Cambridge universities.

Students at Sir John Deane’s have secured a record number of offers to study at prestigious Oxford and Cambridge Universities.

40 students were invited for interviews before Christmas with 20 students recently receiving news of their offers.

Robert Palin, senior teacher and Oxbridge co-ordinator said: “Congratulations to all the students involved in this year’s Oxbridge programme, including all those who were offered an interview. It is an incredible experience and they should be extremely proud of themselves.

“These students have worked really hard and have become an incredibly close community, supporting each other and developing ideas together during our discussion sessions.

“The number of offers is testament to their hard work and commitment and also to the incredible teaching staff across all subjects who have provided specialist mentoring.

“We are really proud of them all and wish them all the best in the coming months.”

The college has a long tradition of Oxbridge success due to its dedicated Oxbridge readiness programme, which supports students at every step of their application, including practice and preparation for the highly competitive interview process.

Those set for Oxford and Cambridge come from schools across Cheshire, with a number of successful applicants previously attending the college’s partner high schools including The County High School Leftwich, Weaverham High School, Hartford CE High School and Bridgewater High School.

Across the year group, more than 700 students have applied to university (approximately 90% of the cohort), with many continuing to receive their first choice offers over the coming weeks.
