Oxbridge Success

It has been another successful year for Oxbridge applicants at Cardinal Newman, with 15 of our students being offered places to study at the UK’s most prestigious universities.

Offers were made to study a wide variety of subjects, but the most popular by far was English, with an impressive six offers made to study English or English Literature. Other offers include Music, Natural Sciences, Geography, French and Law.

The success comes as the College enters into its 4th year of the prestigious HE+ Programme, which is run in conjunction with Cambridge University. We are the Cambridge University hub for Lancashire, which means that students come to Cardinal Newman for excellent support, guidance and preparation when making an application, not only to Cambridge, but to any of the Russell Group Universities. The HE+ Programme is open to students with aspirations of making an application to one of these top universities and by completing the programme they are giving themselves the best possible chance of gaining a place.

Alongside this programme, we also offer a fantastic Medical Society, which is specifically designed for aspiring Medics, Dentists or Vets to ensure they have the skills and support they need when navigating the challenging application progress. This year an outstanding 28 students have been offered places to study Medicine, Dentistry or Vet Science, one of which is at Cambridge.

Congratulations to one and all for your hard work!
