In 2018, 71% of girls applying to University  secured places in STEM related courses including Dentistry, Medicine, Biomedical Science, Accounting & Finance, Product Design Engineering and Psychology.

Further places were secured across a breadth of Russell Group Universities, including the London School of Economics, Newcastle, Sheffield and Manchester. Girls are reading a range of modern and traditional subjects, which include Law, Geography, Business Studies, Primary Education and Economics.

Girls in The Mount Sixth Form are offered extensive UCAS support when considering their future choices and making their University applications. The freedom of an all-girls environment means there are no stereotypes to future destinations or careers.  Career aspirations are not limited and girls are encouraged to believe in themselves.  If girls want to study Engineering, Medicine, Fashion, Art, take a gap year or enter the world of work we help them achieve this.
