Congratulations to Matthew Speirs (17) on being offered a place at Worcester College, Oxford to read Mathematics. Worcester College can fairly be called Oxford’s top Maths college and is reputed to be the most challenging to join, accepting only around fifteen students per year to read Maths. Indeed, some friendly banter will be heard in the classroom, as Matthew’s Maths Teacher, now himself a PhD was refused a place at Worcester at the same age!
Matthew was confirmed at St. Columba’s in our last Confirmation group and played a major role in leading the Confirmation ceremony, not only being an brilliant mathematician, but also having real creative and artistic flair.
Well done, Matthew. We offer you our support and prayers in preparation for your exams.
