Higher Education

At RGS, we know that it is important for our students to look to the future and consider carefully all of the opportunities that are available to them.

We are proud to offer many opportunities to focus our student’s attention on their future studies and careers including Open Day visits to selected Universities, presentations in school about apprenticeships and access to our Biennial Careers Fair. Our Careers Room provides valuable resources and information on Careers and Higher Education and we invite University Admissions Tutors into RGS to speak to our sixth formers about the process of applying to university.

Last year we were delighted that 178 of our RGS sixth form candidates successfully secured places at 54 different universities studying 71 different degree courses. 66% of our leavers gained places at Russell Group Universities and the top courses chosen by our students were Medicine and Mathematics.

Our top five university destinations (by number of students attending) were:

  • Birmingham
  • Southampton
  • Cambridge
  • Oxford
  • Durham

We’re also pleased to announce that 5 of our sixth formers successfully took up places on apprenticeship courses.
