Oxbridge Four from Bootham School

19 January 2016



Four students from the well-known Quaker school have received exciting news with the offer of places at Oxford and Cambridge Universities.  They are Oskar Fraser-Krauss, Andrew Hodgson, Holly Jeffrey and Elliot Long, who have won through to the offer stage against ever increasing competition from both UK and abroad.  Jonathan Taylor, Bootham’s Headmaster said, “The competition for top university places is now an international affair, with young people from schools around the world looking for the best possible courses.  Every one of these students, and those from York’s other excellent schools, is to be congratulated.  The York Independent State Schools’ Partnership is designed to foster just this kind of ambition.”


The students’ courses are Mathematics at Queen’s College, Cambridge for Oskar, Classics and French at Wadham College, Oxford for Andrew, Modern and Medieval Languages at Clare College, Cambridge for Holly and Economics and Management at Jesus College, Oxford for Elliot.  Places will be confirmed after the summer’s A-level exams.
