Medical Offers for our Sixth Formers

We are pleased to announce that four of our Sixth Form students have been offered places at universities to study medicine next year. These students participated in the Medical Pathways Programme, which provides insight into potential careers in the medical field and helps students develop the skills and experience to support their applications.

Congratulations to Aimee B, Ben P, Maddie E, and Lara O on receiving their university offers. Lara has secured a firm offer from St Andrews University, where she looks forward to studying and enjoying Scotland’s coastal and mountainous landscapes. Maddie is keen to take up her place in Malta, where European options offer a unique opportunity to pursue medicine with the same course structure and qualifications. Aimee has applied for a deferred place for the 2025 intake and plans to travel to Australia and New Zealand before commencing her studies. Ben is thrilled with the prospect of heading to London to take up his offer from St Georges.

In addition to the UCAT Preparation, the Medical Pathways team at Truro School offers workshops, discussions, and access to medical professionals and mentors to guide students through the application process. Students are also connected with Old Truronians for mock interviews with doctors, dentists, and veterinarians to support students’ career aspirations.

Ms Havis, Head of Biology, said, “All our students have worked extremely hard to manage voluntary work, preparation for entrance exams and challenging interviews alongside ensuring they can achieve the highest grades in their A-Levels. They have done very well to gain offers for such competitive courses, and I wish them well in their forthcoming exams.’
