Five Wymondham students secure Cambridge University places
Wymondham High School is celebrating after more students then ever gained places at Cambridge University this year.
Despite competition rocketing in light of the impending increases in tuition fees, due to come into effect in 2012, five students from the school have been offered conditional places at the world-renowned university.
They will now have to study hard to ensure their exam results are enough to fully secure their places in the summer.
Chris Evans, director of the school's sixth form, said staff were 'delighted' for the successful youngsters.
'We usually get on or two, maybe three, offers but we've never had five before. We're very proud because they have recognised how very bright and how hard working the students are here,' she said.
