Students and staff at Wymondham College are celebrating after a record number of sixth formers received offers to study at Cambridge and Oxford universities.

An impressive 13 students have been made offers to study at the prestigious universities.

Melvyn Roffe, principal, said: 'We take pride in the achievements of all our students, but to have so many securing places at two of the very best universities in the world is a tremendous endorsement of these students' own abilities and hard work as well as the support and encouragement they have received from Wymondham College. We are all delighted for them.'

Students Joe Whiting, Edward Wilson, Rachel Mumford, Holly Whitworth, Rosie Baines, Flo Wesby, Louis Pigeon-Owen, Oliver Large, Will Martin, Ben Partridge, Maddie Taylor, Emily Hoogkamer and Jack Evans ensured that the achievement is the academy school's highest Oxbridge success to date.

Kenneth Glover, deputy principal and director of the sixth form, said: 'The success of our students is enormously pleasing and is a tribute to the terrific approach they have taken to their academic lives.

'We are always focused on creating a culture of aspiration and are delighted that so many students can now look forward to such tremendous future opportunities.'
