Year 13 boarder Evie is celebrating having earned the rare distinction of receiving offers to study Geography at every university she applied to. All UK Top 10 or Russell Group universities, she has received offers from Lancaster, Exeter, Edinburgh, Cardiff and Aberystwyth. <br />

Both part of the Russell Group and ranked in the world’s top 25 universities in the QS World University Rankings 2021, Edinburgh places 7th in the UK for Geography in the QS Subject Rankings whilst Exeter places 9th for Geography and Environmental Science in the Complete University Guide 2021.

Also part of the Russell Group and renowned for its world leading research, Cardiff University is ranked 2nd for the impact and 5th for the quality of its research in the government’s latest Research Excellence Framework (REF) assessments.

Lancaster places consistently in the Top 10 in three main league tables. The Times and Sunday Times Good University Guide named it the International University of the Year in 2020 and the University of the Year in 2018.

Aberystwyth ranked in the Top 10 in the UK for Geography & Environmental Science in the Times and Sunday Times Good University Guide 2019.

Evie said: “I feel so excited to have got offers from all my universities. I am so grateful to the school for everything that it has done for me in the 15 years that I have been here. I have earned my Bronze Duke of Edinburgh’s Award, a Teach English as a Foreign Language qualification and so many other things which I believe have all helped me to get my offers and will hopefully help me if I decide to take a gap year.”

“I think that being a boarder has topped off my school experience. I have made so many friends there and has made me feel so involved in the school community.”

Evie currently studies Biology, Geography and Chemistry at A Level as she drives towards her ultimate goal of working in conservation and combatting climate change.
