University Destinations

In the constantly shifting and unpredictable climate of higher education, Sherrardswood School is proud of its outstanding record of achieving university success.

Through a combination of excellent mentorship, UCAS focused provision for every student, individual support for personal statements, career guidance, and interview practice, our experienced staff provide a first-class education, ensuring that our students are well prepared for life beyond Sixth Form.

Our students have been accepted into some of the most prestigious universities in the world, including King's College London, Warwick, Nottingham, York, and many more. Students have gone on to study subjects that include Pharmacology, Computer Science, Law, Mechanical Engineering, and Politics and International Relations. Our track record speaks for itself – we are delighted to have helped countless students achieve their dreams of attending top universities.

A small number of our pupils prefer to take alternate pathways to linear university progression, including gap years, paid employment, apprenticeships, and internships, for which they receive our full support and guidance.

ISI Report 2023 - Older pupils recognise the importance of their decisions when selecting pathways to their future careers. In discussions pupils spoke of good decisions they had made with the help of their teachers to change an academic pathway for a course where they would be more successful.
