With the new academic year well underway, life in the Senior School is incredibly busy, with students completing university applications and drafting personal statements, and staff writing the references that are so crucial in securing places for applicants.
Many students have already received offers but one amongst them deserves a special mention: Ella Watson of 13 A.
Last weekend, Ella received an offer of 32 IB points to study International Relations and Politics at the University of East Anglia, something that alone was cause for celebration. Later that same day, however, the university contacted her again with another offer: an unconditional one to study at UEA.
Such offers are rare and so to secure a place at one of the UK’s top 20 universities on such terms is very rare indeed. Congratulations, Ella!
