Our torch-carriers: Life beyond

It’s always a little sad to see another year of young women leave our Sixth Form – there are always a good many who have been with the school since the age of four, as well as those who blaze a trail in just two short years. But mostly we can’t wait to see what they go on to achieve in their years ahead.

South Hampstead’s Futures Programme, led by a team of dedicated experts, provides exceptional higher education and careers advice tailored to support every individual. Girls can also tap into the Girls’ Day School Trust community of 70,000 alumnae – an invaluable network of former pupils who offer work experience, professional advice and mentoring, not just for the Sixth Form years but for life.

Each year, our leavers go on to pursue their dreams and make their mark on the world. The vast majority of students gain their first‑choice university and continue their studies at Russell Group universities. For the past three years, 20% have received offers for Oxbridge and typically around 10% go on to medical school each year, while increasing numbers are moving stateside to attend Ivy League universities. An overview of recent leavers’ destinations is included at the end of our Sixth Form booklet: please click here.

But it’s how our young women continue in life beyond, as they stride out on their own individual paths, that’s more impressive still. We are proud of all our pioneering alumnae – from award-winning authors to groundbreaking scientists, esteemed lawyers to dynamic entrepreneurs, famous musicians to acclaimed physicians – as they pursue happy, successful lives in a multitude of different directions.

Excellent teaching... helping pupils to be extremely well balanced in their outlook on life.
