I knew that Esher was the College for me because it offered something that no other colleges did

Esher College runs an Oxbridge programme, which encourages and supports students to apply for Oxford and Cambridge. The fact that 14 students from last year were offered places at either Oxford or Cambridge made me think that I might be capable of getting a place in such a prestigious university. I had not thought of where I would go to university until the Principal of Esher College came to give a talk at my old school.

I knew that I would have to wor​​​​k really hard, but what I didn’t know is how supportive the teachers at Esher would be. They have offered me an enormous amount of support throughout this year and enabled me to cope with the large workload of the four A Levels I take. After Esher, my wish is to study Maths at university, which requires me to get 2 A*s grades and an A grade. I know that this is achievable with the benefit of the high standard of teaching, great facilities and resources at Esher College and of course—HARD work!”
