Despite the adversity’s students have faced this year twelve Richard Huish College students have received offers to study Medicine or Veterinary Science at University.
Nine of the twelve students have had offers to study Medicine from Universities across the country. Riya Paul (ex-Bishop Fox’s) has an offer from Keele University, Oliver Haste (ex-Queens College) gained an offer from the University of Leeds and Matthew Caddick (ex- Court Fields) attained an offer from University of Exeter. Former Huish Episcopi students Jemima Lee and Harriet Chick will be studying medicine at St George’s University of London and University of Plymouth respectively.
Four more students, all previously from The Castle School, obtained offers to study Medicine, they were: Ella Silsby who secured an offer from University of Nottingham, Yuqi Cao acquired an offer from Brighton and Sussex Medical School and both Amy Udall and Katrina Camama have received offers to head to the University of Birmingham.
The other three students will have the opportunity to study Veterinary Science at University; Jodie Baker (ex-Kingsmead) picked up an offer from the University of Bristol and heading to the University of Liverpool are Abbie Kittow (ex-Uffculme) and Amelia Savage (ex-Haygrove).
Although there has been huge difficulties faced due to reduced acceptance – a freedom of information act showed that some universities have cut their acceptance by 60% for medicine and one university didn’t accept a single application for medicine due to oversubscription in the previous year, this really is a huge achievement. Congratulations to all of these students, we look forward to seeing the next steps they take on the road to their dream careers.
