One of our central aims in sixth form is to help every student realize their ambition of securing the best possible next step, for many this means a place on the best course for them, and at the right university for them.
From the start of Year 12 we offer ongoing support and advice to students about their options after A-levels. While we seek to give accurate and realistic advice regarding students’ prospects in light of their predicted grades, we remain fully committed to supporting them through the application process whatever their chosen path and our assessment of the likely outcome.
Our higher education experts help students with the crucial steps to securing a place, from choosing the right subjects and the best institutions to how to apply and prepare for interviews and admissions tests. However, our students’ success rate in attaining a place on their desired course is ultimately thanks to their own hard work and determination.
Our students consistently secure places on the most competitive university courses, at institutions with rigorous entry requirements. The 2020 cohort was no exception; with 64% achieving A-level results of at least ABB (the minimum entry requirement for many top universities) we maintained our excellent record of admission to leading institutions.
Of the 170 students who left our Year 13 in 2020, 93.9% continued to higher education. Nine students achieved places at Oxford or Cambridge.
Figures provided by UCAS confirm that of GSAL’s leavers in 2020:
We also know there are many other options available to school leavers, including apprenticeships. Our Head of Careers and EPQ, Mrs Scott, was interviewed by The Independent School Parent, in 2019 about this option.
