Zoe’s move to independent school “really helped” her get into Oxford
A Level student Zoe Jinadu believes transferring to an independent girls’ school helped her achieve her goal of studying at Oxford.
Zoe moved from a state school to Redland High School for girls in Bristol to study A Levels. She made the most of the opportunity to explore her interests in a number of subjects, taking A Levels in Chemistry, Mathematics and English Literature and also AS Levels in Creative Writing and Music. She was rewarded with three A*s, two As and a C grade.
Zoe also undertook an Extended Project Qualification (EPQ) on of the impact that the Cultural Revolution in China had upon women. She has now been accepted to read Chinese at Oxford.
She said: “I’m just so happy. I never would have been able to do this without the community here at Redland High. I wouldn’t have thought that it was achievable but Redland High made me believe it was.”
