Oxbridge Next Stop for Rachael & Daniel
Congratulations to Year 13 students Rachael Bragg and Daniel Beech. Rachael and Daniel gained places at the countries top universities Oxford and Cambridge, where Rachael will be studying History at Pembroke College Oxford and Daniel Natural Sciences at Trinity College Cambridge.
Headteacher Jeanette Saw said 'We’re immensely proud of Rachael and Daniel in securing places at such prestigious institutions."
Rachael, who studied for A Levels in History, English Literature, Politics and Maths has been offered a place at Pembroke College, Oxford, to study History. Daniel has been granted a place at Trinity College, Cambridge, to study Natural Sciences, after obtaining the required levels in his A Levels in Chemistry, Physics, Maths and Further Maths.
Rachael, who was awarded a place at a summer school at Oxford University earlier this year said she was thrilled to have been offered the opportunity to study at the university: “Oxford was at the top of my list of places to study, and after spending time at the university this summer I know it’s where I want to go. “There’ll be a lot of hard work ahead to make sure I get the grades I need, but my teachers have been really encouraging and I know they’ll support me to achieve the A level results I need.”
Year 13 student Daniel, who visited Cambridge in the autumn and was impressed by the history of the university added: “Getting a conditional offer to go to Cambridge is a real dream come true. The university’s Natural Sciences course is very well respected, and it’s fantastic to know I could soon be learning at the college where Isaac Newton was a student. “It’s going to be a challenging few months studying for my A Level exams in June, but the staff at Audenshaw really do put a lot of extra time in to help us make sure we’re fully prepared.”
Head of Sixth Form Mr Herbert said: “We were delighted to hear that Rachael and Daniel have been offered conditional places at Oxford and Cambridge – it’s a real testament to their hard work and dedication. “Our aim is to provide specially tailored challenges for every one of our A Level students, be that the subjects they choose to study or the university destinations they aim for. “We’ll be working closely with Rachael, Daniel and all our Year 13 students over the next few months to help them achieve the A Level grades they need to fulfil their ambitions beyond the Sixth Form.”
