At The Mount Sixth Form we set the bar high for our students and they obtain excellent results.

“Sixth Form results at A Level are above the national average for all maintained schools and sixth-form leavers are successful at entry to a wide range of universities.” ISI Inspection 2018

The Mount School York celebrates A* A-Level result and University success in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) and Arts related subjects.
  • 67% of all grades were A-A* 
  • 87% of all grades were B and above
  • 63% of girls achieved at least 3 A*-A grades
  • 42% of girls achieved a clean sweep of A*-A grade

Former Principal, Adrienne Richmond, said, “I am tremendously proud of the College II girls. They have worked extremely hard over their two year A Level courses. Despite the unusual circumstances of the last year and the cancellation of exams, in true Mount style the girls always remained upbeat and motivated. The excellent results they received are extremely well deserved. I congratulate all the girls and wish them every success for their future.”

University Destinations

Students from The Mount Sixth Form regularly accept offers from their first-choice universities. Each year, our girls proceed to a broad range of university destinations, with most leavers accepting offers from Oxbridge, Russell Group and international universities.

In 2021, Leavers’ university destinations included Durham, University College London, Manchester, London School of Economics, Edinburgh and York for a diverse range of courses including Veterinary Medicine, English Literature, Geography, Finance and Biochemistry. 

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.
