OS Destinations

Destinations of our OS

Stonyhurst pupils go on to pursue a wide and impressive range of opportunities after leaving us. The vast majority attend universities, both in the UK and abroad, while every year some pupils are supported in applying for apprenticeships or employment opportunities. Some pupils are also guided through applications for specialist institutions, such as music conservatoires. 

In 2020, 88% of those applying through UCAS received 3 or more offers, allowing them great scope to make a final choice. Our leavers take up places in an incredible range of courses, including various social sciences, business, law, STEM subjects, and languages. An equally diverse range of institutions welcome them, and in 2020 an impressive 57% of those entering UK universities did so at Russell Group institutions, such as Manchester, Birmingham, Durham and KCL. Every year, a number of students go on to study Medicine or Dentistry, following the support they have received from MedSoc and the Careers staff. In 2020, 8 students took up places on medical courses, including one at Oxford and one at Cambridge. 

A special programme of support is given to those applying to Oxford or Cambridge, and every year some of our pupils take up places at these famous and prestigious universities. The Careers department also supports a wide range of international applications, including US universities, Asian universities, and a vast number of European universities. 

Pupils receive excellent personal guidance in choosing their next steps, as well as in completing all the necessary steps to reach their goals. It is wonderful how many of our OS continue to get involved in sharing their skills and experiences to support the next generation of Stonyhurst pupils to follow in their footsteps.
