sciences

progressFar more ex-Symonds students leave university with first or upper second class degrees than is typical for students from either the state or independent sectors. This is a remarkable achievement and bears testament to the thorough grounding students receive with us. The College remains a perfect place for ambition.

Government performance tables show that students at Peter Symonds make more progress from their starting points than would be expected. Our students have attained a statistically significant positive score every year since the government first published value added data.

Our students also have a highly impressive record of securing places to study medicine, veterinary science and dentistry. In 2020, 62 students were offered places to study medicine, dentistry or veterinary science. Symonds remains the top college for students aspiring to careers in science and medicine.

Research by the Sutton Trust shows that Peter Symonds is one of the five main contributors of students to Oxford and Cambridge universities nationally. Others in the top five include Eton, St Paul’s and Westminster independent schools.Government statistics

show that more Symonds students go to Russell Group universities than from any other institution in the country. In 2020, 674 students took up places at these top universities.

We are extremely proud of all of our students, the progress that they make when they are with us, and the things they go on to do when they leave.

Three-year average Figures correct at time of going to press.

“I’ve made some great friends and Symonds is a lovely place to be.”

“Study support ensured I had extra time and a laptop which helped me to do my best in my exams. The support I received gave me the opportunity to strive and achieve”

“Oxbridge and HE+ sessions were very useful in preparing me for the whole application process as well as giving me the confidence I needed to go through it.”

“The careers department gave me loads of help with my UCAS application and my teachers pushed me to do my best and apply for universities I didn’t think I’d get into.”

“I already had the drive and passion to do well in my subjects, but the College provided me with the tools and support I needed to feel confident in doing so. I feel very privileged to have been given countless opportunities by the College in order to push myself to do well.”

“Symonds has very friendly staff who will do everything possible to help you achieve your best grade. The College gave me confidence and more opportunities and I’ve moved from a low result in GCSE PE to very nearly the highest BTEC Sport grade.”
