Destinations 2018

Although the University destination table for the last thirteen years shows Cambridge and Oxford as the two of the most popular destinations, pupils opt for a healthy mix of institutions, selecting those which best suit their needs.

Higher education and GAP year guidance begins at the half-way point in the Lower Sixth. It includes Coursefinder questionnaires, a Higher Education Evening, and a comprehensive programme of internal talks and seminars.
