21 Oxbridge offers for boys at King Edward's School

21 boys at King Edward’s School, Birmingham have received offers from Oxford and Cambridge for October 2015.

12 boys received offers from Oxford and nine from Cambridge across 12 different courses. This brings the total number of offers received by boys at the school over the last six years to 125.

“This is a generation of exceptional talent and these boys richly deserve this great success,” said John Claughton, the Chief Master.

“Oxford and Cambridge are world-class institutions and they attract the best talent from all round the world, so that it has never been harder to get an offer: for some courses there are a dozen applicants for every place. It could not be more competitive and gaining an offer requires not only ability and hard work, but real intellectual engagement. We are particularly pleased that the boys have won offers across such a breadth of subjects: half of the offers are in Maths and Science, half in humanities subjects and that says a lot about this place.”
