University Destinations and Future Routes 2021

27 August 2021

Many of our Upper Sixth leavers are celebrating as they go onto exciting, positive future routes following the publication of exam results this summer.

A key part of the Norwich School journey is future pathways, getting pupils where they want to go. This is true whether that pathway is university, an apprenticeship, Art Foundation course or straight into the world of employment.

There have been some terrific performances over the two-year A Level course period and for 2021 we are pleased to announce that:

  • 98% of Upper Sixth pupils secured their first or second choice university
  • 88% of pupils secured their first choice university

Our pupils have had particular success in applying for both STEM and arts-based courses, with pupils accepted onto courses ranging from Medicine, Engineering and Biomedical Science to Graphic Design, Music and Languages. Engineering remains popular, with 13 pupils heading to study the subject, followed closely by History and Business.

The below graphs show the most popular destinations and course for 2021:

We also have a number of pupils going onto study abroad with places secured in Chicago, Malta and New York as well as non-UCAS routes such as Apprenticeships.

The broad range of courses chosen by pupils reflects the diversity of our Sixth Form offer for pupils. Norwich School places an emphasis on equipping pupils with the skills that they need for whichever direction they choose to take.

We wish all our Upper Sixth well as they continue on their journeys beyond Cathedral Close.
