Oxbridge offers lead university acceptance success at John Lyon

Lami and Owen

Offers from both Oxford and Cambridge universities to A-Level students at John Lyon are the highlight of another successful year for the School’s Upper Sixth year.

Everyone at John Lyon congratulates Lami, who will read Human, Social and Political Sciences at Cambridge, and Owen, who will read History at Oxford.

The School’s Oxbridge success is backed up by a large number of offers from other leading Russell Group universities across the country, including at Durham, Warwick, University College London, King’s College London, Manchester and Bristol.

From Dundee to Exeter, dozens of John Lyon students will head to university to read subjects including law, medicine, economics, history, geography, politics, classics and modern languages.

Commenting on the success, John Lyon Head, Katherine Haynes, said: “Having been recently named the best two universities in the world, Oxford and Cambridge really do remain the high watermark for higher education across the globe. We are especially thrilled for Lami and Owen to have been through the notoriously tough examination and interview process with offers to read two extremely prized subjects.

“Having watched and got to know the dozens of young men in our current Upper Sixth year over a number of years – many having been here since they were just 11 – it is with both professional and personal pride that we see such success in these university offers, both in the number of offers being made and the great breadth of subjects they will study. Coming with just months to go until A-Level exams we hope these offers will boost our students’ motivation to succeed even further.”
