    University and College Destinations 2020

    As you are no doubt aware, the awarding of A levels in August 2020 was not straightforward. However, our sixth form students achieved outstanding results and have been able to use these to embark on a fantastic range of courses at an impressively broad array of universities and colleges across the country.

    185 students have begun degree courses at 46 different institutions in well over 100 subjects and subject combinations. The table at the bottom of this article gives a breakdown of their university destinations.

    Here are some headlines:

    • 75% of places are at Russell Group Universities
    • 18 students gained places at Oxford or Cambridge
    • 6 students are studying medicine
    • 31% of all degrees are in STEM subjects
    • History and Politics are the most popular fields this year representing 13% of all courses
    • English literature and language degrees represent 11% of all courses
    • Economics and Geography are the next most popular areas with 8% respectively.
    • Bristol and Manchester Universities are our most popular destinations with a strong showing from Leeds, Sussex, Edinburgh and Glasgow.
    • Another 20 of our students have taken up places on art foundation courses at  Camberwell, Camden Working Men’s College, Central St Martins, City and Guilds of London Art School, Ravensbourne and the Royal Drawing School.

    We would like to wish them every success in their degrees and other pathways, especially in this year’s difficult circumstances when their freshers experience may not have been quite what they were expecting.
