A HANDFUL of sixth formers from Hurst Green’s Stonyhurst College have gained places at Oxford University.
Lucia Turner from Hurst Green has been offered a place to study Medicine at Lincoln College and James Powell from Clitheroe will read Law at Lady Margaret Hall. Both have attended Stonyhurst since Year Seven.
Charlotte Redmond from Rossendale, Stonyhurst’s Head Girl, will read Biomedical Science at St Catherine’s College, and Simon Whittle, a boarder at Stonyhurst from Bromsgrove, will read Philosophy and Theology at St Benets Hall. Simon and Charlotte have been pupils at the school since Year Nine. Natalya Filvarova from the Ukraine, who joined the school for the sixth form, will read Experimental Psychology at Queen’s College.
Stonyhurst’s headmaster, Andrew Johnson, said: “It is incredibly difficult to get into Oxford or Cambridge and I am delighted with the achievements of these five young people. Their success is the result of sheer hard work and the excellent support they have received from their teachers.”
