Madeleine Briggs, deputy head girl at King’s High School, who has received an offer to study History at St Hugh’s College, said: “I’m very excited about this amazing opportunity – though I still can’t quite believe it.”
Gus Lock, head master of Warwick School, said: “Competition for places at these and many other prestigious universities seems to get stronger every year, so I was delighted that eight of our pupils gained offers from Oxford and Cambridge this year as well as many more at other leading universities.
"It is an extremely fine achievement by all of these students.”
At King Edward VI School in Stratford, 12 students offers, with seven from Oxford and five from Cambridge.
Receiving offers from the University of Oxford are Sam Brooks, Hamish De Nett, Guy Hughes, Kate Matthews, Andrew Markham, Lily Watson, and Dan Wilkinson, and offers for the University of Cambridge have gone to Ben Dennes, Georgie Jones, John Lusty, Zachary Price, and Jack Robinson.
Bennet Carr, head master, said: “The Oxbridge selection process is hugely challenging, both academically and personally, and I am thrilled that these students have had their hard work and dedication rewarded with an offer.
"I am sure that they would wish to join me in thanking the academic staff who have supported them so well in preparing their applications”.
