We were delighted to hear that our applicants to Oxford have both received offers, and both at their first choice of college.
Dylan Boyd has received an offer of a place to study Physics at New College Oxford.
Jordan Strobach-Morris has received an offer to study Physics and Philosophy at Baliol College, Oxford.
All their teachers and friends shared their excitement on Wednesday at this news. Many congratulations to you both.
For Sandown Bay Academy's Medrox group, this represents a second consecutive year of 100 per cent success in applicants to Oxford securing offers of a place to study at this world class university. To achieve the offer, both students had to sit a demanding Physics and Maths entrance test and attend a rigorous set of interviews at two Oxford Colleges. To help prepare for this, they were given help and preparation by their subject teachers and a practice mock interview by current teachers who were joined by recently retired colleagues. Thanks to all colleagues involved in supporting the boys in achieving their ambitions.
