University Offers

68% of Westholme students’ university offers are within the elite Russell Group

As Westholme’s Upper Sixth prepare to stand down on Friday, many are in a very strong position in terms of their university offers. On average, they hold four offers each, with 68% of the places being within the elite Russell Group.

Mrs Waldron, Head of Sixth Form said, “There is a lot of negative media coverage about over-subscription for places. What we have evidence of at Westholme is that good GCSE performance, attention to detail on the UCAS application form, strong supporting references and hard work will mean that our girls will get to the universities they aspire to. Almost 20% of our students have had offers from Durham and Cambridge and 10% of all places are in the challenging fields of medicine and dentistry. We are very proud our girls have got this far and we wish them all the very best for the forthcoming exams.”
