Oxford success for Read duo
Jubilation was in plentiful supply at Read School, Drax this weekend. Whilst people across the world will remember Saturday 6th May 2023 as being the day of King Charles III’s Coronation, two very special members of the Read School community were enjoying their own prestigious ceremony.
Annette Oliver (Head of Classics and Deputy Head of Sixth Form) and her son, Robbie Oliver (Head Boy 2013-2014) graduated from Oxford University in the same ceremony. This double celebration for the Olivers is a monumental occasion – and an incredibly proud moment for Read School, Drax. The ceremony, which took place at the Sheldonian Theatre in Oxford saw Annette, 62, receive her MSt in Literature and Arts, whilst Robbie, 26, was awarded his DPhil in Condensed Matter Physics.
Read School were fortunate to speak to both Robbie and Annette regarding their academic successes, following their graduation ceremony at the weekend.
