‘Independence and Initiative’ – Oxbridge 2019

Well done to the 22 Wellingtonians who have been offered places at Oxford or Cambridge. These talented students have shown incredible commitment to their chosen areas of study and, all being well, will be heading off to embark on courses ranging from Music, to Classics, to Engineering and Natural Sciences at the end of this year. The full list of courses and destinations is featured below.

Deputy Head, Academic, Matt Oakman commented: “I am delighted by the continued success of our students gaining offers from Oxford and Cambridge. It is evidence of their hard work, grit, resilience and growing ability to show independence and initiative that has allowed them to flourish during this notoriously difficult process. I wish them all the very best in the coming months as they now look to secure the grades that they require”.

In addition to their academic achievements, these students have also found time to pursue other passions while at Wellington, and all have made a generous contribution to the co-curricular life of the College. Among the individuals listed, you will find a leading member of Disrupt, Wellington’s entrepreneurship society; members of the Symphony Orchestra, two of which hold Music Diplomas; the leader of the Concert Band; the Editor-in-Chief of The Economics Magazine; Arts Scholars; 1st XI hockey players; a Pastoral Prefect; a triathlete and basketball player; organists, drummers and composers; a Cross Country captain; a Captain of Cavalry; and the Chair of the Philosophy and Theology Society.

We are grateful to Dr Victoria Gardner, Director of Academic Extension, and her team of Oxbridge supervisors, Dr Ruth Lexton, Miss Alice Taylor, and Dr Robert Cromarty for the excellent support and inspiration they have given these students.

Congratulations to them all!
