UPPER SIXTH PUPIL MILO, FROM GLASBURY, HAS BEEN OFFERED A PLACE TO READ ENGINEERING AT BALLIOL COLLEGE, OXFORD THIS SEPTEMBER.
Squeals of delight could be heard in School House earlier this week, when boarding pupil Milo, from Glasbury, received his letter from the Tutor for Undergraduate Admissions at Balliol College, Oxford.
Milo, who studies Maths, Further Maths and Physics at A Level plans to study a four-year course in Engineering.

There’s lots of hard work ahead in order for me to achieve the grades but I know I will have excellent support from my subject teachers and other staff.” Mrs Taylor also commented, “Milo has always been an extremely hard-working and driven young man whose talents know no bounds. Whether treading the boards or winning cadet competitions, Milo always gives his all. I’m thrilled for him to receive this offer from one of the top universities.”
