OXBRIDGE SUCCESS FOR LORETTO SCHOOL PUPILS
24th January 2014

Loretto School is celebrating after two of their pupils have been offered a place this year Cambridge and Oxford University.

 

Sixth-form pupils, Guy Butler (aged 17 from Inveresk) and Hamish Lamotte (aged 17 from Haddington) have been given a conditional offers to read History at St Edmund's Hall, Oxford and Natural Sciences at Selwyn College, Cambridge respectively.

 

Jonathan Hewat, Director of External Affairs at Loretto School, said: "Gaining admission to Oxford and Cambridge Universities is one of the toughest academic challenges a school leaver in the UK can face. Only the very brightest and most highly qualified apply, yet applications still outnumber available places by five to one.

 

"This year, with the aid of specific and specialist preparation, we are delighted that both Guy and Hamish have been successful in this most competitive of intellectual ordeals. It is a great credit to them both."

 

Loretto School boasts a remarkable university entry success rate with 97% of pupils entering their choice of university and it was recently announced that it was in the top 5% of all schools for adding academic value.
