THE pressure is on for five Sleaford school pupils who have been offered places at Oxbridge – subject to them gaining the required grades.
The students from the Sleaford Joint Sixth Form have successfully got through the application process to Oxford and Cambridge after each gaining sufficient AS levels, written a lengthy personal statement and had references from their tutors.
Headteacher of Carre's Grammar School, Nick Law, said: "We are very proud of our students and this is testament to the continued success of the Sleaford Joint Sixth Form, which provides first class education and opportunities to the young people of Sleaford."
Alice Hayler from St George's Academy has an offer for Veterinary Medicine at Cambridge.
She said: "I definitely want to be a vet. I'm not totally sure what area I want to work in yet although at the moment I think I'd like to specialise in equestrian."
While Carre's Grammar School student Jack Doughty has an offer for Modern and Medieval Languages at Cambridge and said he is considering something to do with translation or culture.
