Sixth form students at The Grammar School at Leeds (GSAL) have continued the impressive success rate of their predecessors in securing offers from Oxford and Cambridge universities.

Holding offers from Cambridge are Megan Gilbert (Barwick-in-Elmet) for English and drama in education at Clare College, Marcus Roberts (Collingham) for mathematics at Trinity College and Daniel Voice (Thorner) for economics at Gonville and Caius College. Hoping to be Oxford bound are Jeremy Huitson (Shadwell) for law at Corpus Christi, Josephine Pepper (Scarcroft) for biochemistry at Brasenose and Katherine Pye (Whixley) for history and politics at Magdalen College.

Teacher Ray Peacock is GSAL’s Oxbridge coordinator. He said: “We’re delighted with the 17 Oxbridge offers at GSAL, equalling last year’s school record!”

Three students who left GSAL last year have also achieved offers - Thomas Davidson from Harrogate, heading for Cambridge University, while Jack Baillie from Leeds and Louis Walker from Scarcroft have offers from Oxford University.
