Leavers' Destinations

Our leavers have justifiably high aspirations. Of those who left St Olave's after A-Level in 2018, 96% had received university offers in the UK, USA or Europe when they left; of the remainder, 1% took up places at a prestigious college of Art, and 3% took planned gap years and have applied for 2019 university entry. Over 90% of our 2018 leavers had received offers from Russell Group universities. Over 15% received offers from Oxford or Cambridge, and over 20% received offers for Medicine or Dentistry.

As of January 2019 of the 232 students in Year 13, 95% have applied through the Universities and Colleges Admissions Service (UCAS). Of those who have applied, over 80% have already received an offer from one or more Russell Group universities and virtually all of the rest are still waiting to hear back from at least one university. 28 Oxbridge offers were made to Olavians this year covering a wide variety of subjects, including Biochemistry, Biology, Economics, Engineering, Geography, History, History & Politics, Land Economy, Maths, Medicine, Natural Sciences, PPE, Physics, and Psychology & Behavioural Sciences.

A full list of destinations can be found in the Olavian Magazine (under the Olavian Community tab).
