Upper Sixth looking ahead

This year 135 of our Upper Sixth students have made applications to higher and further education institutions, both in the UK and further afield – between them submitting in excess of 650 separate applications. While the majority of our students apply for university in the UK, students have also targeted Holland, the United States, and even Japan this year!

At this stage we are still waiting for a number of decisions to come back, but 400 offers have been received so far with many students gaining successful decisions from all five institutions they have applied to. Most notably, nine students have received offers from the universities of Oxford or Cambridge and one from Yale, plus there have been ten offers to date for Medicine, Dentistry or Veterinary Science courses.

Furthermore, students have also received offers for specialist courses in Art, Drama, and Theatre Performance, as well as making strong applications for highly competitive degree apprenticeship opportunities. Bristol Grammar School is committed to supporting the aspirations of all of our students, irrespective of pathway, and we look forward to sharing more successful news as it comes in.
