Students Celebrate Cambridge Offers

Two students at Ellesmere College are celebrating after being offered a place to study at Cambridge University from September 2018.

Wayne Wang & Victor Zhao, who joined Ellesmere in September 2016, learnt of their offers at the end of last week. Although a nervous time, both students felt the preparation they had been given by the Sixth Form team at Ellesmere was instrumental in helping them gain their place.

Wayne said "Applying for University in the UK is a big step. I took much time over my personal statement and my UCAS form and the support of my tutor, Housemaster, subject leaders and Head of Sixth Form all enabled me to have the confidence to know my application was the best it could be".

Both Wayne and Victor came to Ellesmere due it its track record of helping students access the top universities. Throughout their time, they have completed the extended project, worked on the Monduli Green charity, been members of the Chapel Choir and taken part in the varied extracurricular opportunities that exist.

Victor said "Coming to Ellesmere enabled me to pull together my academic abilities in a clearly defined way and allowed me to build other skills and experiences of which I previously did not have. I have no doubt that what Ellesmere has given me as a platform, has been instrumental in my offer of a place at Cambridge University and to that I am truly thankful".

Wayne has been offered a place at Gonville & Cauis College to read Engineering, whilst Victor has been offered a place at Trinity College to read Computer Science.

Headmaster, Mr Wignall, said "I congratulate all of the Upper Sixth students on receiving so many excellent offers at University, with a considerable number being unconditional places. Within any process, this is a team approach and it is always great to see pupils gain the places on the courses they wish to follow. We wish all our Upper Sixth students good luck in the next few months as they prepare for their final exams".
