On the 11th January 2017 students across the country were waiting by their letterboxes for the post to be delivered, hopefully with their all important Oxford University letter. The letter informed them if they had been rejected or offered a place at the University.
Sixth Form student Rhiannon was one of these students. Having been through the extensive application process involving an exam, essay and three days of interviews, she was unsure if she would make the final cut, especially as she plans to defer for a 2018 entry.
We are thrilled to announce that Rhiannon was offered a place to study History at the University of Oxford. The University also acknowledged that Rhiannon wished to defer and accepted her for admission in October 2018 which is a fantastic achievement.
Rhiannon plans to use her gap year doing charity work for 'Safe Passage' in Guatemala. The charity brings hope, education and opportunity to the children and families making their lives around Guatemala's garbage dump. To see more about this incredible project click here.
We couldn't be prouder of all that Rhiannon has achieved. She works hard and is a brilliant representative of All Saints' Academy. Well done Rhiannon!
'After a challenging application process, receiving an offer for Oxford University was overwhelming and very exciting. Although I have lots of work ahead of me I am really pleased to have been given this opportunity. I'd like to thank my family, friends and staff at All Saints' Academy for supporting me through the application. A special thanks to my Year 11 History teacher Miss Cameron who has continued to support me since moving to another role elsewhere.'
