Wisbech students gain offers to attend medically related courses at university

STUDENTS from Wisbech have beat others from across the country to win places of medical related courses at university.

Christopher Clements and Charlotte Hay, both 18, and 17-year-old Saskia Hooper have all had offers to read medicine at three top universities. Mr Clements is hoping he gets the right A-level grades to go to the University of Leicester.

Miss Hay aiming for the University of Nottingham and Miss Hooper has set her sights on the University of Birmingham after they both received conditional offers.

They join fellow Wisbech Grammar School students Nicholas Clarke, 18, who has been offered a place at the Royal Veterinary College and Katherine Jacka, 18, who hopes to start studying dentistry at the University of Glasgow.

Aston University has offered Vincent Tsoi, 18, a place to read Pharmacy as students rush to beat the tuition fee rise next year.

Nicholas Hammond, headmaster, said: “We are delighted with the high level of success that has been achieved by our students in what is an ever more competitive university application environment.

“At Wisbech Grammar School we take real pride in the ambitions of our students in applying for demanding university courses and it is always good to enjoy this level of success.”
