Most Popular Destinations and Courses

Where our girls go to university is a fairly good indication, not just of the teaching at the school, but of the overall attainment of the school.

Quite often the offer of a place at a top university comes down to how a girl performs at interview. They look for articulate, confident students who are interested in the world around them and can think critically and strategically.

Through our Sixth Form studies and small group teaching of subjects, your teachers will help you gain the skills needed to present yourself in the best possible way. We encourage and organise opportunities for public speaking, debating and presenting for all students in Sixth Form through the Holdich Society and debating competitions like the Model United Nation Conference. As a consequence, we consistently get large numbers of students to their first choice university.
