Oxford International College alumnus Julio Revilla who gained outstanding A-level results last summer was presented with a special award for academic excellence at the House of Lords on Wednesday 5th April. Lord Lexden, a former General Secretary of the Independent Schools Council, hosted the annual award presentation on behalf of the Council For Independent Education (CIFE). Oxford International College is a member of CIFE, a group of twenty independent colleges committed to delivering the very highest standard of education.
Julio was one of just 18 students receiving the CIFE College award. Julio joined Oxford International College in June 2014 for a two year A-level programme in Maths (A*), Chemistry (A*) and Biology (A) and is currently studying Biochemistry at the University College London.
Lord Lexden said: "Year after year statistics produced by leading international organizations show that our independent schools and colleges provide an education that ranks among the best in the world. No wonder families here and abroad are so keen to send their children to CIFE’s successful member colleges. Their outstanding A-level results prove once again that they have fulfilled the trust placed in them."
Julio was accompanied to the House of Lords by our Principal, Mrs Kim Terrar as well as his father and brother who flew in to the UK for this special occasion. We are very proud of Julio for this well-deserved recognition of his achievement and are confident that a great future lies ahead for him.
