Medics lead way at Queen’s

A quarter of the school’s Year 13 girls are applying for medicine

Studying hard; girls from Queens sixth form

The expert advice and personalised support delivered at The Queen’s School for university applications has again paid dividends.

Two pupils are currently holding offers from Cambridge University and an unusually high amount – around a quarter of the school’s Year 13 girls – are applying for medicine.

Data from the past few years shows that around 8% of girls from Queen’s go on to study at either Oxford or Cambridge and around 12% go on to study medicine each year.

Even though universities traditionally make offers for medicine later, girls already have offers of places at Cambridge, Birmingham and King’s College London.

All but one of this year’s applicants for other university degree courses are holding offers; 86% from Russell Group universities and 82% from Times Top 20 universities.

Head of sixth form Claire Dillamore said: “We work really hard to give girls the best advice so they can choose the university and course that will suit them and support them in achieving their ambitions. We wish them all the best of luck for the summer.”

The Ursula Keyes Scholarship for entry into The Queen’s School Sixth Form is available to girls at any school wanting to pursue a career in medicine. It is accompanied by a means-tested bursary. For more information and details of how to apply please contact Jane Taylor at the school on 01244 312078.
