Upper Sixth gain 3 prestigious university programmes
Against fierce competition, two Sherborne Upper Sixth Form boys have secured offers on three prestigious university programmes run in conjunction with prominent financial services companies.
After a final assessment centre which included an hour long interview, Mattie Hooper (a) was accepted on University of Newcastle's Business Accounting and Finance course, which is run in partnership with PwC. He also gained an offer for University of Lancaster's Accounting, Auditing and Finance course sponsored by Ernst and Young. Alex Carr (e), facing competition from 5,000 applicants, has been offered a place on KPMG's new six year School Leavers' Programme, which combines professional training with a degree programme at either University of Durham or University of Exeter. Students on this programme start on a salary of Â£20,000, which rises to Â£45,000 in the final three years, and they will complete it with a degree, a professional qualification and no student debt.
