Sackville works with Cambridge University
Students in year 10 got a taste of life at Cambridge University after hearing a talk from Dr Matt Bullimore on Tuesday 4th February. Dr Bullimore is a regular visitor to Sackville and talked of the need to try to get the best GCSE grades possible, and that with these behind you anyone is in a position to apply for a place at Cambridge or another of our prestigious universities.
On Thursday 6th, a minivan full of year 12 students visited Chuchill College to get a taste of life in the university, talk to existing students and staff, and to be given further advice on how to secure a place in one of our most competitive institutions. These students will commence their applications later this year.
2020 has seen Sackville get four offers at Oxford and Cambridge, and we hope to be able to continue this success rate in coming years.
Of course this can only happen with strong academic progress and good teaching. We are pleased that the publication this week of the official school performance tables showed both are in place at Sackville, with our GCSE students once again significantly above average.
