Where next?

A Downe House education propels girls confidently into their next adventure beyond school and into some of the world’s leading universities and institutions.

Where will a Downe House education take your daughter?

Girls from the Upper Sixth Form leave us to take up places at top universities across the world; this year 84% headed to Russell Group universities and a further 7% to world-class universities in the US, Canada, the Netherlands and Switzerland.  With 89% of girls achieving A*-B grades at A Level/Pre-U, the results show a consistently high level of performance by Downe House girls. Almost 60% of all grades achieved by the girls were A or A* and their grades really are testament to the girls’ diligence and commitment to their studies. We have no doubt that they will be great assets to their chosen universities.

University destinations

Our 2018 leavers were successful in securing university places in the UK and overseas for a wide range of courses, reflecting the diverse achievements and interests of this year group. Where more than one girl is taking a course, the number is shown. We are hugely proud of their achievements and wish them every success in the next phase of their adventure in education.
