Merchiston Students Attain Oxbridge Places

Published Thursday 16th of January 2014 11:54:23 AM

Every year, Merchiston, Edinburgh has an ambitious group of talented pupils, determined to test themselves in the highly competitive Oxford and Cambridge University arena. Normally, a third of the applicants succeed; this year is no exception. The offer of a place at Oxford or Cambridge is a triumph for the pupil and his teachers and the School is delighted to announce 4 such successes this year.

Attaining a place at university is the next step in their educational journey and to achieve a place at Oxford, Cambridge, or any other prestigious university requires hours of studying by the pupils and support by their teachers to accomplish the necessary high grades. Dougal and Matthew, both from Edinburgh, joined Merchiston at the ages of 10 and 11 respectively and the School is happy to think that it has helped them get this far! Antoine has been at the School for the past 4 years, during which the support of Merchiston�s teachers has helped him reach his full potential. By contrast, Carl joined Merchiston in the Sixth Form, and the School has enabled him to refine his academic abilities, which has assisted him in recognising his undoubted potential. The School is pleased that Oxford and Cambridge also recognise these pupils� exceptional abilities, congratulations to all!
