It is also, I think, a reflection of the greater emphasis the College is placing on fostering a culture of independent learning and intellectual curiosity within the student body. ”
Gaining entry to these two institutions is now harder than ever before as more than six students apply for every one of the 3,000 places that are available, so warmest congratulations to them all. As ever, some highly talented and intelligent Wellingtonians narrowly missed out but, with nearly 600 university offers already made to this year’s leavers, including a number to leading US institutions, the class of 2016 have a very bright future ahead of them. The majority of US offers will come in March, but Wellingtonians have already been accepted to Yale, Columbia, NYU, Stanford, Cornell, Duke and the University of North Carolina, once again securing the College’s reputation for excellence in preparing students for further education on both sides of the Atlantic.
