Pupils at The Manchester Grammar School (MGS) have been highly successful in securing offers for the Universities of Oxford and Cambridge.

For 2018 entry, 32 MGS boys have received offers from Oxford and Cambridge, placing MGS in a very select group of top academic schools nationally.

Pupils have received offers to study a very wide range of courses, including English, engineering, geography, history, languages, mathematics, medicine, music, philosophy and science.

This year’s offers follow on from MGS being named as the North-West Independent School of the Year 2018 by The Sunday Times in their schools’ guide.

In addition, in January School Sport magazine announced that MGS is fifth nationally in its league table of the best independent schools for sport, and the top school in the North of England.

The High Master, Dr Martin Boulton, said: “It’s good to see that the talent and dedication of MGS boys is being rewarded once again this year with offers from so many world-class universities, including Oxford and Cambridge.

“I am exceptionally proud of their achievements and  wish them all every success with their examinations later this year.

“I am also delighted that the School has been named by The Sunday Times as the North-West Independent School of the Year 2018.

“To top it all, it has been wonderful to hear that our sporting achievements across the 40 sports we offer have been recognised.”
