University & College Destinations of Year 13 Leavers
This summer there was much media coverage of the difficulty facing many students hoping to go on to university or college – essentially more students chasing fewer places. A combination of the tighter financial limits placed on higher education institutions and unprecedented numbers of Sixth Formers gaining the grades which would normally secure university places. We are delighted to report that our Year 13 leavers did not encounter any significant problems – most achieved the grades they needed to confirm first or second choice offers, and very few needed to go through clearing. It may well be, however, that 2010 is the last year where the practice of taking a “Gap Year” is encouraged by universities – Admissions Tutors will come under increasing pressure to stabilise or even reduce undergraduate recruitment in the years ahead, reducing flexibility in the offers they are able to make.
This year our successful Oxbridge candidates were Katie Lewendon (to read Chemistry at Oxford), Harry Tuffs (to read English at Oxford), and David Palmer (also to read English at Oxford). Amongst the more unusual and noteworthy examples of individual success John Woodham received a unique & prestigious trumpet scholarship to secure his place at the Royal Scottish Academy of Music.
