Barnsley Sixth Form College student Lauren Taylor has two reasons to celebrate – achieving three A grades in the first year of her A Levels and getting a place on a prestigious Oxford University Summer School.
Lauren, of Mellor Lea Farm Drive in Ecclesfield, Sheffield, said: “I really enjoyed the Summer School; it was a bit scary at first as the university is so huge but everyone was lovely and Oxford is so pretty. I usually focus on the practical side of art so it was a really good opportunity to look at the history side and visit museums and galleries. I’m now looking forward to starting my second year of A Levels and I’m definitely planning on applying to Oxford next year.”
Barnsley Sixth Form College Principal Gerard Garvey added: “We are very proud of Lauren’s excellent first year results and the fact she was accepted to the University of Oxford Summer School. This was a great opportunity for her and really helps to inspire other students to aim high. Our experienced team of tutors will be on hand next year to support all our students with their university applications and we hope Lauren will be heading off to Oxford after her time with us.”
