Exceptional Oxbridge Success 2023

It’s celebrations all round as 20 Greenhead College students are offered places to study at either Oxford or Cambridge, the UK’s most prestigious Universities.

The offers cover an exciting range of degree courses including Music, Engineering, History, Geography, Modern and Medieval Languages, Medicine, Computer Science, Maths, English and more.  

We are so proud of all the students involved who really have worked incredibly hard and dedicated huge amounts of time and effort to the gruelling application process.

Greenhead College supports any student aspiring to apply to Oxbridge Universities through its dedicated Oxbridge Support Enrichment Programme. This comprises of masterclasses, interview workshops, presentations by admissions tutors, residential visits, and practice admissions tests.

Imaad Nisar, who came to Greenhead College from Royds Hall Academy and has been offered a place to study Computer Science at Cambridge University said: “Anyone who has thought about applying to Oxbridge should just do it. You might have something or learn something about yourself which you never even realised.”

Richard Pember, Oxbridge Coordinator at Greenhead College said: “We’re incredibly proud of these students. Their education was undoubtedly disrupted during GCSEs, and so to be completing their A Levels, having secured an offer from Cambridge or Oxford, is an incredible achievement.”
