Oxbridge Success - 26 offers this year.

11 January 2010

Oxford University and Cambridge University have made offers to 26 boys from King Edward’s School. This is the highest figure since 2002. John Claughton, the Chief Master, said that everyone was delighted with this outcome. ‘This has always been an exceptional generation of boys in the school, and it is very exciting for the boys to receive offers. The list is particularly satisfying because of the breadth of success: there is barely a subject that has not had some success.’
