Post subject:  Bravo Oxford!

Oxford extends their EXISTING programme, Foundation Oxford, from 12 to 50 students.

This programme currently runs at Lady Margaret Hall and will now be extended to other colleges.

They are also introducing Opportunity Oxford which is aimed at bringing the level of students from deprived backgrounds from 5% percent to 25% by 2023.

Bravo.

There are super smart students who don't get a chance to compete with those who are being strongly assisted to a place at Oxford as Oxbridge results are a money spinner for their school.

They have nothing to fear. There are still 75% of the places to compete for.

Delighted to hear of a lot more smart, rather than prepared students, getting a chance to be at Oxford and good to hear that Oxford continues its quest to secure academic excellence no matter where it might be found.
