She said: "We are delighted to be congratulating our Year 13 students who were successful in their applications to Oxford or Cambridge this year.
"With all of our IB applicants gaining offers, it's clear that some of the anxieties that have surrounded IB and Oxbridge might have been unnecessary. What unites these students is a sense of the 'hunger' that they are able to articulate about their chosen subjects and an ability to thrive when pushed outside their intellectual comfort zone."
Meanwhile, at Beechen Cliff School Jasper Russell has been offered a place to read physics at Merton College, Oxford, Finn Shields to read music at St Hilda's College, Oxford, Xining Wang an open offer to read biomedical sciences, and Chris Banner to read history at Christ's College, Cambridge.
