Our Student Successes

Emily Morbey 

Former School: The Holy Family School

Studied: A Levels in Biology (A*), Mathematics (A*) and English Language (A*)

Destination: Human Sciences degree at the University of Oxford’s Keble College

Emily, who was the joint top-performing A Level student in 2019, initially secured a place at the University of Oxford’s prestigious Summer School in 2018, which confirmed her dream to study there. Discovering she had secured a place at Oxford on A Level Results Day, Emily said: “I’m ecstatic, I was convinced I wasn’t going to get in. It will be such an amazing place to study a course that really interests me. It has been a great experience at Selby College – I’m so grateful for the support of my lecturers!” 

Kate Settle
