Some of the toughest subjects at university are to be studied by nine students from a St Albans school who have been offered places at Oxford and Cambridge.

The girls from St Albans High School faced tough competition to gain their places and will be studying subjects as diverse as biological natural sciences, medicine, veterinary medicine, physics, chemistry, history and law from this autumn.

The successful students are Kate Branley, Laura Prince, Rachel Thompson, Emily Whitby, Heidi De Sousa, Megan Donnett, Alex Rowett, Mya Zaver and Courtney Marsden.
