From Brentwood School To Cambridge University
Cambridge University will welcome six Brentwood students.
Chani Merrell, one of the School’s most recognisable Performing Arts students says, “I was the most nervous I have ever been in my life.” Her two A*s and one A see her off to St John’s, Cambridge, to read Education with English and Drama.
Lucy Patchett worked hard and succeeded, with three A*s which will pave the way for her to study Classics at Queen’s, Cambridge. As for her immediate future, Lucy said: “I am going out with family
and friends and then I am going to sleep and sleep and sleep as I haven’t properly slept for a
very long time.”
Alex Rowley, who was waiting on a place at Pembroke College to read Natural Sciences, aced his grades with A*s in Chemistry and Mathematics and As in Biology and Further Mathematics. He paid tribute to Mathematics Teacher Mr Ewin and Head of Chemistry Mr Endlar.
Tallulah Allen received A*s in English, French and Spanish and will study Medieval Modern Languages at Jesus College.
National Public Speaking champion Alice Grundy gained results which reflected her hard work – A*A*A
- which enable her to read History at Homerton, Cambridge. “It is the hardest I have ever worked for anything in my life,” she said. “I hope to become a History professor or an Academic. I am good at school so I think I might continue it on a permanent basis,” she joked.
Abi Chapman secured A*AA and is also Cambridge-bound. She is excited to study Geography at Fitzwilliam.
Brentwood School Students Head To University
Several high-flying students from Brentwood School will be heading overseas to study. The School is a national test centre for SAT American Admissions Tests. Ashley Chalmers is heading to High Point University in North Carolina on a Scholarship. Simon Botbol will study at Brandeis University in Massachusetts. Christian Lear will go to Munster in Germany and Guillaume Goodey will begins his studies at Kings College London and will spend a year abroad at the prestigious SciencesPo in Paris.
Five students are off to study Medicine or Dentistry courses, traditionally the most difficult courses to get into. Abbie Greenhill is off to Bristol to study Medicine, James Morbin is heading to Keele University to study Medicine, Kimberley Punwani will be studying Medicine at Leeds, James Rowell will also be studying Medicine, and Shalini Sahni will be studying Dentistry at Plymouth.
Congratulations to all of you!
