“Without a doubt, my time at Haywood firmly placed me on the path to Oxford. My potential was recognised early on, and I received constant encouragement to strive for the best grades. With their support I achieved a great set of GCSE’s, giving me the confidence I needed to apply to Oxford.” – Jordan Williamson, former Haywood student studying law at Trinity College, Oxford
