Destinations 2020

It is important to have high aspirations and we set demanding targets in line with our “Ad Astra” (“To the Stars”) motto. We transmit a strong work ethic to our students and it has resulted in them leaving school to take their place at the most prestigious universities in this country.

We are proud to say that entry to top Universities is the norm for most of our students. This is not by accident; we prepare and support students through a rigorous careers programme and with events as well as individual preparation for interviews and with UCAS.

In 2020, 79% of students accepted a university place with 29% enrolling on courses at Russell group universities. Six students will be reading medicine and one student has been accepted to read Chemistry at Oxford.
