15 May 2014 / TRURO HIGH SCHOOL GIRLS HEADING FOR THE COUNTRY'S TOP UNIVERSITIES
Once the results of their ‘A' Level exams are available in August, those Truro High School students will be moving all over the UK from Edinburgh in the north to Exeter in the south. They will study a diverse selection of subjects including nursing, neuroscience, medicine, mathematics, accountancy, geography, foreign languages, English Literature and classics.
The Russell Group represents 24 leading universities committed to the highest levels of academic excellence in both teaching and research. The group also has unrivalled links with the business and public sectors - essential for supporting students at the start of their careers.
Amongst the Truro High students with outstanding offers is Katie Purohit, who has a provisional place to study medicine at both Cambridge and Edinburgh, and Jamie-Lee Job who has offers from both Bristol and Cardiff to study neuroscience.
Truro High School Head of Sixth Form, Deb Freeman, said: "These are first class offers from the very best universities in Britain. The girls should be very proud of themselves. They are all working hard to prepare for the exams and ensure they achieve the results they need and deserve."
