Mayfield girls celebrate Oxbridge success

Published Friday 30th of January 2015 09:17:57 AM

Girls from St Leonards-Mayfield School have again secured impressive offers from top British universities. The Mayfield girls scheduled to take A Levels this summer have received offers from Oxford, Cambridge, UCL, Imperial and LSE, with more offers still to come. The girls are following in the footsteps of generations of Mayfield girls, including six pupils who have taken up places at Cambridge this year. Yet again this year�s A Level candidates have applied to study a broad cross-section of subjects, from English to Engineering and medicine to modern languages, emphasising Mayfield�s strength across the board.

The successful Oxbridge applicants are:

Joanna Banasik - Human, Social & Political Science at Emmanuel College, Cambridge
Karolina Prylinska - Medicine at Selwyn College, Cambridge

Mary-Rose Beamish - Geography at St Edmund Hall, Oxford

Amelia Gabriel - English at Lincoln College, Oxford.

Joanna Banasik has also been offered a place at the London School of Economics and is also awaiting offers from Ivy League universities.

In addition, Erica Chan and Cecilia Yip have already been offered places at Imperial College, London to read Geology and Biochemistry respectively. Both Erica and Cecilia have also secured offers from UCL, as has Deputy Head Girl Valentine Godin (Mathematics with Economics).

�I am delighted that our world-class universities, not only Oxford and Cambridge, but also Imperial College, UCL and LSE have recognised the exceptional abilities of our best students.� Says John Filkin, Head of Sixth Form at Mayfield. �This is very pleasing, not least because it is alongside the achievements of many other Mayfield girls who are holding offers from highly competitive institutions such as Durham, Bristol, and Edinburgh and St Andrews.�
