“What I want to get out of my college course is some knowledge of the best way of living life and doing the most and best with it. I want to learn to understand and help other people and myself.”
Last year, 100% of girls got into their first choice of university with 41% to the top Russell Group of universities. Destinations in the last few years have included: Bristol, Cambridge, Durham, Edinburgh, Exeter, Imperial, King’s College, Leeds, LSE, Newcastle, Nottingham, Oxford, UCL, Warwick and York, to read a wide range of subjects, including Accounting and Finance, Chemistry, Classics, English, Geography, History, History of Art, Languages, Law, Mathematics, Mechanical Engineering, Media and Communications, Music, Philosophy, Politics, Psychology, Sociology and Theology. Many girls take Foundation courses in art and design at renowned colleges of art, such as Central Saint Martins, Camberwell, Chelsea, City & Guilds, London College of Fashion, as well as Parsons (both in New York and Paris), before going on to study for a degree in Fine Art, Fashion or Photography. Others are successful in gaining coveted places to study drama at RADA and LAMDA.

Girls are given individual guidance to make informed decisions regarding higher education. During the Lent term, each girl completes a Centigrade questionnaire and receives a personal report which forms the basis of her research into choosing degree courses. Visits are arranged to UCAS fairs and taster days, as well as individual university open days. Following the AS examinations, an intensive programme of preparation for university application takes place, including a presentation given by a university admissions tutor. Girls and parents are issued with an information booklet, providing detailed guidance, in particular how to write a winning personal statement. At the beginning of the Michaelmas Term most girls will submit their applications and mock interviews are held, conducted by external academics and contacts from various professions. After the publication of the A Level results, places are finally confirmed. For those wishing to make a post-A Level application, the Director of Sixth Form and Head of Careers are happy to advise and offer guidance.
Below are detailed some degree results from Universities and colleges for past leavers.
A number of girls take a gap year after completing their A Levels, with organisations such as Africa and Asia Venture and Raleigh International, raising money beforehand to finance their placement. A successful gap year requires careful planning and a good starting point is the Year Out Group, whose members sign up to a code of practice.
The benefits of a well-structured year out are widely recognised. However, girls are advised to contact university admissions tutors to check whether a gap year and/or deferred entry is acceptable for their chosen course.
The Heathfield Fellowship (our old girls’ society) offers financial assistance with gap year projects to worthy candidates.
