Three students from Tadcaster Grammar School have been offered places at Oxbridge.

Ben Sharples, Harry Rodgers and Ben Lewis went through the difficult application process and were successful in receiving offers, which are dependent on their final exam results.

“I have been offered a place to study Medicine at Gonville and Caius College, Cambridge,” said Ben Lewis.

“I am really pleased to have gained a place and very thankful to our Head of Sixth Form Nancy Budler for helping me in the process.”

Ben Sharples is also bound for Gonville to study Maths, while Harry Rodgers will study Economics at Brasenose College, Oxford.

“I am immensely proud of all our students who applied to Oxford and Cambridge,” said Ms Budler.

“They were all brave enough to take a chance and embark on a difficult application process,” she added.

“It is fantastic that eight students were called for interview with three of those being offered places.

“Oxford and Cambridge are particularly difficult to get offers from, but there are many competitive courses out there and our students have been both brave and bold in their applications.”

Ms Budler said: “I am proud of the achievements and applications of all my Year 13 students and have encouraged them all to pursue their dreams and aim as high as they can.

“Most students have been made offers by all of their university choices which is a great achievement for them and testament to the wonderful teaching staff at Tadcaster Grammar School.”
