King’s College is delighted to announce that three of our students are celebrating this week after being offered places to study at Oxford and Cambridge Universities.

School captain, Harry Cooper-Simpson has been awarded a place to read materials science at Queen’s College, Oxford, while Lorcan Cudlip-Cook has been offered a place to read English at Pembroke College, Cambridge.

Former school captain, Charles Collins, who left King’s last summer, will also be heading to Oxford to read philosophy and theology at Pembroke College. Upon receiving the offer, he said: “I’m happy and also relieved that my hard work has paid off.”

Looking ahead to university, Lorcan commented: “I am looking forward to the chance to immerse myself in a subject that encompasses all of my passions: theatre, history, philosophy and literature.”

Reflecting on the students’ success, Headmaster, Richard Biggs said: “Charles, Lorcan and Harry have been inspired and supported by the school and their teachers. They have worked hard at their applications, reading widely to ensure sure they were interesting and attractive candidates; I congratulate them very warmly.”

He added: “King’s College’s proud track record of Oxbridge success underlines our academic credentials. Through inspirational teaching and an enriching curriculum, we ensure our students’ studies go well beyond the confines of the syllabus and help them to develop a genuine, life-long passion for learning.”
