THREE sixth-formers at St Benedict's School in Ealing have received conditional offers to study at Cambridge University.

Alice Jenkins has an offer to study Medicine at Christ's College; Thomas Gordon to study Engineering at Pembroke College, and Eleanor Bowden to read Anglo Saxon, Norse and Celtic at Fitzwilliam College.

Headmaster Andrew Johnson said: “Not only have they demonstrated huge commitment to their chosen subjects, they have also made an outstanding contribution to the life of the school – as prefects, in the performing arts, and leaders of various activities.

“I have no doubt they will all excel at university and beyond. I am also proud of our other students who were interviewed, and, indeed, all who are working hard to gain places at other universities.”
