Progression - Great Futures

Each year more than 3/4 of our Year 13 students progress to university, with around a quarter securing places at Russell Group Universities, the most prestigious institutions in the UK. 

The majority of the remaining students pursue Art Foundation courses, high level Apprenticeships or Gap Year experiences. Our students pursue a wide range of careers, mirroring the choices that are available within our Sixth Form subjects. Our tutors are experienced in supporting students to attain entry to a vast range of courses, including Medicine and Law, which remain popular among our students. 

If you are considering applying to either Oxford or Cambridge you require specific qualities as well as outstanding academic qualifications. Our Sixth Form Oxbridge group gives you the best possible chance of success with your application, including visiting speakers, advice from Oxbridge students and admissions tutors from Oxford or Cambridge to help you to prepare. We have an annual programme of mock interviews, tailored for all students likely to have a university interview, but also available for any Sixth Form student. We run a transition day in Year 12 that focuses on making successful applications for university courses and apprenticeships. 

80% of students leaving the 6th form secured University places, with 33% of students going on to Russell Group Universities. Five students secured places at Oxford or Cambridge University, an outstanding achievement.
