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