Cambridge bound...and heading to Harvard!

St George's is delighted that five students are celebrating having received offers from Cambridge University. 

Head Boy, Demi Tola-Obembe, is going up to Churchill College to read Engineering Sciences, together with Ethan Jones, who is reading Computer Science. Rory Parkinson and Harry Convey have received offers from Homerton College, Rory to read Maths and Physics, Harry to read Natural Science. Another Natural Science student is Alex Mason, who will be going up to Emmanuel College. “I would like to thank all the staff who guided me through this challenging process; the support was invaluable.” Alex Mason.


Head Girl, Ellie Shahbo, was also offered a place to study Neurobiology at Harvard, gaining an early offer only awarded to those who are deemed to be outstanding – and Ellie is certainly deserving of this accolade. “I am extremely grateful to have the opportunity to study at one of the world’s top universities, but it is due to the support I have received from my teachers and the staff at St George's College, and my parents, who have been phenomenal. To all of them I give my thanks.” Ellie Shahbo.

Also worthy of note is the fact that four of the five boys, as well as Ellie, originally came from St George’s Junior School.

Mandy Smith, Assistant Head: Sixth Form, was delighted with this news, saying: "We are so proud of the students' achievements. Cambridge and Harvard are extremely competitive; all have done their absolute best and are deserving of the outcome."

Whilst celebrating this news, the College is also immensely proud of the efforts being made by all its other A Level students, the vast majority of whom are on track to join other top ranking universities.
