Solihull students set for Oxbridge

Solihull School has reinforced its standing as one of the Midlands’ most successful schools after recording another superb set of Oxford and Cambridge University offers.

Five Sixth Form students at the co-educational independent day school on Warwick Road have won conditional places to study at the historic institutions.

Georgina May-Hart has been awarded a place to read Portuguese and Spanish at St Hugh’s, Oxford; Thomas Daniels, Spanish and English at Selwyn College Cambridge; Lewis Johnston, Medicine at Keble College, Oxford and Billie Delpino, Biochemistry at Brasenose College, Oxford.

In addition, Old Silhillian Gwynneth Horbury, who gained her A Levels and took a year out to reflect and consider her options, applied to Cambridge this year and won a place to study Education at Pembroke College.

Headmaster David EJJ Lloyd said: “I am thrilled for our students who have all worked extremely hard to achieve their #Oxbridge success. Credit goes to the teachers – for helping candidates through the very demanding selection process.”

Solihull School secured a 100 percent pass rate in last year’s A Level results, with almost 50 percent of passes achieved A* or A grades.

In September 2019 Solihull School and Saint Martin’s School announced plans to merge bringing the two schools together to create a larger Solihull School, which will provide dedicated early years, infant, junior and senior facilities on two campuses.

Solihull Senior School will be located on Warwick Road Campus and Solihull Preparatory School on Saint Martin’s Campus from September 2020. The merger legally completed on Monday 6 January 2020.
