Once again, the number of students gaining a university place has increased on the last year. From our class of 2021/22, 78% of students have gone on to secure University Places. In total, our Year 13 cohort received an impressive 279 university offers, from 47 universities across the United Kingdom. Many students have gone on to study at Russell Group Universities, and other top institutions across the country. More students than ever have gone further afield to attend University, including The University of Manchester, University of Warwick and University of Leicester. The local Higher Education establishments remain popular, with many students going to our local red brick; the University of Birmingham, Aston University, The University of Law and Birmingham City University.
This year, students have pursued a variety of different subject areas, including; Medicine, Law, Optometry, Pharmacy, Social Work, Criminology, Neuroscience, Chemical Engineering, Architecture, Policing and Investigation, Education, Child and Adult Nursing, Learning Disability Nursing, Graphic Communication and Accountancy. The sheer variety in their interests and ambitions has been exciting, inspiring and we wish them all the absolute best on their chosen University course.
Many of our students have also secured places on competitive local apprenticeships, professional training courses and employment in local businesses, with some even returning to our school, now as employees.
Looking ahead to our next UCAS cycle, we are proud to be supporting students with our first ever international applications to Higher Education, as well as our first application to Oxbridge in 2022/23.
