Five science students at Wisbech Grammar School have scooped offers of prestigious places at leading universities on courses in medicine and dentistry.

Holly Young (17), from King’s Lynn, has been offered a place to read medicine at the University of Cambridge, provided that she achieves the required A Level grades in the summer.

Offers to study medicine have also been made to Chloe Short (18), who lives in Boughton and is set to go to the University of Birmingham, and to Mehroze Asif (18), also from King’s Lynn, who has been offered places at three universities.

James Stevenson (18), who lives in Coates, has won an offer from the University of Liverpool and Annabelle Tibbett (17), from Doddington, has offers from two universities. All of the offers have been made on the condition that the sixth formers achieve the A Level grades required.

Headmaster Nicholas Hammond said: “We are delighted that such a significant proportion of our sixth form have been made offers for high demand university places. The students have worked hard to gain these places and their teachers have supported them every step of the way.

“Over the last decade Wisbech Grammar School has proved itself to be an ideal training ground for those who wish to study medicine and other competitive entry subjects. Our approach to education clearly works and we look forward to working with our current lower sixth form group to ensure that they realise their potential.”
