Oxford success for Cillian Manning (Year 13)!!14th January 2022
In December, Cillian was successful in being invited to interview at Jesus College, Oxford University… this week he has now has received an offer to study Beginners Italian and Linguistics there.
A delighted Cillian said: “It is such a relief after a long wait- it has been 5 weeks after the interview! I am so pleased all of my hard work and preparation has paid off. I’m excited to study in an environment renowned around the world as one of the best, where I can foster my future ambitions of joining the Diplomatic Service. It will mean I get to travel around the world, use my language skills and be constantly learning more throughout my career.”
Cillian was particularly supported with his UCAS and interview process by Mrs Ciccazzo and Mrs Ward. His EPQ (Extended Qualification Project a 5000 word research project helpful when applying to universities), on the Geography of Languages, steered his interview, what it was about and the college requested a copy!
He is a real credit to the school; he helps run Forest6 café , is Deputy Head Boy, Head of the Student School Council and a reading buddy! We are confident that, despite the pandemic, this is only the beginning of a chapter of more amazing achievements that reflect his ambition and resilience.
He is a fantastic role model for our younger students and we wish him all the best!
