"North-East students take up nearly a quarter of places on Oxford University programme" writes Jo Kelly from the Northern Echo.
Jo Kelly reported on six students from St. Bede's Catholic Comprehensive School and Byron Sixth Form College in Peterlee who have been accepted on to OxNet 2020-21.
St Bede’s link teacher, Martin Old, said “We are delighted that our students performed so well. This year was the most competitive in the ten-year history of Oxnet.
The successful students from Peterlee are Erin White, Anya Gilfoyle, Hollie Akers, Isobel Marshall, Tom Hilton and Amy Wilkinson.
Isobel said:“Oxnet allows you to break barriers in your learning, giving you an advantage in education that goes beyond the curriculum.”
Amy said: “I think Oxnet is a brilliant opportunity for me to develop new skills and experience what university is like first hand. It’s great that the seminars will be led by some of those at the top of their field.”
