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?

Every year, students from the Upper Sixth leave us to take up places at top universities across the world. In 2022, 89% took up places offered at their first choice universities, with 82% heading to Russell Group universities and 29% to QS World Top 50. Many students (24%) went on to read STEM subjects including 10% reading Medicine and Medical Sciences, with Politics, Economics and Management, as well as creative and performing arts courses also being very well represented. With 92% of the grades at A Level and Pre-U being A* to B, and 75% of all grades being A*/A, there is every reason to praise the girls’ diligence and recognise the support that they had from both their teachers and their parents. We have no doubt that they will be great assets to their chosen universities and institutions.

University destinations

Girls in our Class of 2022 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. We are hugely proud of their achievements and wish them every success in the next phase of their adventure in education.

Where more than one girl is taking a course, the number is shown.
