    It is important to have 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 2018, 91% of students accepted a university place with 36% enrolling on courses at Russell group universities. Four students will be reading medicine and two students have been accepted on to courses at Oxford and Cambridge.
