Leavers’ Destinations

BGS consistently sees its Sixth Form students secure places on the most competitive university courses and the vast majority of those who apply, achieve a place for degree level study in their chosen area.

Terrifically successful at A and AS Levels, BGS is recognised as having the highest average university admission points per student of any school in West Yorkshire.

In 2017 A Level results were outstanding with 21% of all exams awarded A* and 56% A*/A grades, both up on last year allowing the vast majority of our students entry to their university of choice. Every year a number of our pupils apply successfully to Oxford or Cambridge.

We are very proud of how successfully and smoothly run our UCAS application process is at the School, with a comprehensive programme of important Higher Education events firmly embedded within Sixth Form life.

One of our central aims in the Sixth Form is to help each student realise their ambition of securing a place on the most appropriate course and at the best possible university for them.

We seek to give accurate and realistic advice regarding students’ university prospects in light of their Sixth Form experience and predicted grades, and remain fully committed to supporting them through the application process.

Our students consistently secure places on the most competitive university courses, at institutions with rigorous entry requirements. 2017 was no exception.

We maintain our excellent record of admission to leading institutions and are recognised as “having the highest university admission points in West Yorkshire with well over half of our outstanding A Level results graded A* or A” (The Telegraph and Argus).

Of the 127 students who left our Upper Sixth in 2017, 91% continued to higher education in the UK or abroad in the immediate year afterwards. Six students achieved places at Oxford or Cambridge.

Figures provided by UCAS confirm that of BGS’s leavers in 2017:
  • 62% secured a place at an institution of their first choice
  • 60% were accepted by a higher tariff provider, typically Russell Group universities
  • Students were encouraged to look at the increasingly attractive alternatives to the UCAS route:
    • One student achieved a place at Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT)
    • Apprenticeships include a student who has started a Degree Apprenticeship with Kennedys Law and another training with EasyJet to become a pilot
    • One student is studying for a Vocal Studies Degree at the Northern College of Music.


Students from BGS travel far and wide in order to fulfil their aspirations
