Headmaster Simon Duggan, himself an Oxford graduate, commented; “These are exemplary students in an excellent year. Jacob, Ebi, Joe & Tom have demonstrated admirable commitment to their studies whilst maintaining a worthy contribution to College life. I am convinced that they will flourish, both academically and beyond, at 2 of the best universities in the world. They have been a pleasure to teach. This shows what can be achieved at the College by able students who engage with their studies and their teachers”
