Have just read in the local paper that Bishop Vesey is sending 15 of their 6 Formers to Oxford and Cambridge this year. Surely that is a great achievement for any school.

Not at all wishing to rain on anyone's parade, but if you mean 2018 entry, I assume this is actually '15 have got offers from either Oxford or Cambridge'? The students concerned still have to get the required grades (not to mention, make the university concerned their 'firm' - believe it or not, even some people who get to this stage decide that Oxford / Cambridge is not really their first preference).

But yes, of course, achieving an offer from a university that one would really like to go to is a great thing for any sixth former :) .

Our little school has 17 offers this year - predominantly from Oxford - a school record for offers - great if that is where the kids want to go and end up!
