Wisbech Grammar School Pupil Tarn Chamberlain James celebrates with an offer of a place at Cambridge University.  

Upper 6th Form pupil, Tarn, is currently studying A Levels in Biology, Physics and Chemistry. She has shown real dedication to achieve her dream of studying Veterinary Medicine at Cambridge, working with her personal tutor Dr Alex Shillings. She has also been supported by Dr Stuart Miller who oversees the whole UCAS process at WGS, specifically focusing on medicine and veterinary applications and guiding her through the process of applying to Cambridge University.  







I’m absolutely delighted to have the chance to study veterinary medicine at Cambridge. It has been a dream of mine and I’m thrilled to be one step closer

Tarn actually achieved offers to study veterinary medicine from all of the universities she applied to, including Cambridge, Bristol, Nottingham, and Liverpool; her first choice being Cambridge.


 I am incredibly proud of Tarn’s achievement. An offer from Cambridge is excellent news but to have every major veterinary college offering her a place is simply fabulous. It is testament to Tarn’s hard work and dedication as well as the outstanding science department and reputation we have for enabling our top scientists to go on to realise their lifelong ambitions.
