Oxbridge news 2019
This year 15 Loreto College students have had their places confirmed by the top two universities in the world: University of Oxford and University of Cambridge. Students will be reading a range of subjects including Medicine, History , Law, Maths, Geography and Philosophy.
The successful students come to Loreto from a variety of non-selective, state inner-city high schools from across the region, including Salford, Stockport, Oldham, and Manchester. Those with Oxbridge potential are identified by GCSE results and academic performance once they arrive. They are then offered a bespoke programme designed to develop students’ debating and thinking skills, whilst providing insight into, and knowledge of, the application process.

51 Loreto College students have been offered places on medical or dentistry or veterinary degree courses. They are given rigorous interview preparation with a strong emphasis on the scientific aspects of the various courses and career paths, as well as being encouraged to engage in broader reading, to consider ethical issues and participate in debates. The college has developed superb connections with the community outside Loreto, ensuring that students are involved in summer schools, conferences, visits and forums, and take full advantage of opportunities presented by leadership and research projects, locally and internationally.
