Selwyn is blessed with beautiful gardens and a wonderful collection of trees. The world needs more trees, so as part of our 140th anniversary - we're working in partnership with the Woodland Trust to help create a new forest on the Smithills Estate, near Bolton, in Lancashire. During 2022, for every donation of £250, we will plant a tree with the aim of creating one or more Selwyn acres of native woodland to help mitigate emissions and which is sustainable and rich in biodiversity. Each planted acre comprises 750 individual trees and the below list highlights the generosity of Selwyn alumni.
The University of Cambridge has published data about the undergraduate examination results in 2021-22. Selwyn was placed second in the collegiate university for the percentage of students achieving ‘good honours’ – which represents the combined total of Class I and Class II Division I results. We congratulate our students on their excellent performance, and also thank our academic and support staff for this achievement.
