Fiona Price, TBSHS Oxbridge Co-ordinator, commented, “Seven Oxbridge offers in one year is a record for TBSHS and we are particularly proud of the achievements of these students who have worked exceptionally hard to gain these offers through the most difficult of circumstances.  Despite extensive school closures, remote learning and contending with virtual interviews, they have managed to impress Admissions Tutors with their potential. They have made full use of the all the support offered by our staff and also exploited numerous enrichment opportunities, many virtual, to develop their academic ability, such as involvement with societies, external speakers, summer schools, and wider reading.  We know they will continue to work hard to achieve the grades that they need to confirm their places.”

Rob Stark, Head of Sixth Form said, "We are absolutely thrilled to have seven students receive conditional offers for Oxbridge. These conditional offers are a real testament to their immense commitment to academic excellence and alongside their teachers, I know they will work tirelessly to achieve the grades required. Even in these challenging times, we pride ourselves on delivering an outstanding all-round education, combining the importance of academic rigour with extensive opportunities outside the classroom, and it is wonderful to see seven fantastically talented and hardworking individuals thrive in this environment. This update is a fantastic boost for all involved and I am immensely proud of the efforts of our teachers, students and tutors. In addition to these individual highlights, we are delighted that so many of our students are receiving offers from such competitive universities, many of which are ranked in the Top 10 Universities List.”
