Georgie Tibbenham has accepted an offer to study Biomedical Sciences at St Catherine’s College, Oxford, following a rigorous application process.

Four students have also been offered places on prestigious medical courses.

Erin Rees received offers from Liverpool and Birmingham, Imogen Matthews received one from Sheffield, Jessica Coombs received one from Hull York Medical School, and Lucy Shrivell accepted one from Birmingham.

St Bart’s advises students during the early application process for Oxbridge or medical courses, and the sixth form programme includes guidance on extracurricular study, work experience, personal statements, aptitude tests, written work, interview preparation and support with the decision process.

Alison Lane, deputy head of sixth form at the school, said: “The success of these students is remarkable given the many challenges they faced in their sixth form careers and the disruption to their education during the pandemic. We are incredibly proud of their achievements and look forward to hearing of their continued successes in the future.”
