The Upper Sixth at St George’s, Ascot have enjoyed a number of notable successes in their applications to prestigious universities this year. Although all post-18 options are encouraged and supported by the School it is still the case that undergraduate study remains the most popular choice for girls in thinking about their next step after secondary education.
Prominent achievements include two overseas applications to North American institutions with Virginia successfully gaining a place at New York University which was always her first choice. In comparison, Faith is having the enviable challenge of deciding between a number of offers from US institutions including Iowa University and Berry College.
Meanwhile, Sophie has been looking somewhat closer to home but with no less ambition as she has applied for the highly competitive option of Medicine. So far she has been successful in gaining offers from Nottingham and Cardiff with two more universities yet to make their decisions.
Although these three pupils are to be congratulated for their achievements their Upper Sixth peers have also been highly successful in gaining offers from Bristol, Edinburgh, the LSE and UCL amongst many other universities. Such offers will provide significant motivation for the girls as they continue their studies towards the A Level examinations in May and June.
