20 Year 10s accepted onto Oxbridge Programme

Sunday 28 February 2021

We are thrilled that 20 of our students in Year 10 have been accepted on a webinar programme run by 'Target Oxbridge', a programme that aims to help black African and Caribbean students and students of mixed race with black African and Caribbean heritage increase their chances of getting into the Universities of Oxford or Cambridge (known collectively as Oxbridge). Since launching in 2012, Target Oxbridge has helped over 200 students to secure Oxbridge offers.


The students submitted applications and secured references from members of staff, and we are thrilled that so many have been successful!

They are no doubt inspired by our alumni: in recent years we’ve seen BDA pupils progress to some of the UK’s most prestigious institutions, such as Oxford, Cambridge, Imperial College, UCL, Bristol and Durham. Students have been successfully awarded full scholarships to study at some of the highest ranking universities in the world such as, Harvard University and MIT.
