Exciting times lie ahead as University offers arrive for 2017 entry.
All US University early acceptances were made before Christmas with Oxford and Cambridge offers arriving in early January, the combined total of which is 85. We and final year pupils keenly await other offers from Universities in UK, US (regular application) and the rest of the World the vast majority of which will arrive by the end of April. We will then be in a position to publicise and to celebrate the University destinations of Paulines in due course.
