Three A Level pupils from a Hornchurch Sixth Form have secured places at a “highly selective” summer school in Oxford.
The New City College’s Havering Sixth Form students have been selected out of “more than 400” applicants who were interviewed to go to the University of Oxford's John Locke Institute Summer School.
Kacper Loniewski, Tashya Kimacia and Tadgh Kerin will join the programme in the summer break alongside international students.
Tashya is currently studying English, politics and philosophy at New City College’s Sixth Form and has secured a place at Balliol College, in Oxford.
It is hoped that the two-week intensive course of philosophy, politics and economics will push Tashya to develop a range of skills.
