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

    Our students want to further their studies and our role is to inform and enable them to pursue their dreams. 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.


    The list of Destinations names the most prestigious universities in the Russell group and we are very proud of those who secure places at Oxford and Cambridge. However Oxbridge is not everybody’s dream and we encourage students to shop around for the best courses that suit their talents and ambitions.
