Results & Leavers’ Destinations
The Academy opened its doors in 2012 with an ambitious vision for how a diverse school in inner London could, with the support and inspiration of one of the world’s leading Universities, inspire all our students to achieve success. From day one, our students and staff have benefited from our close relationship with UCL, and our results underline how that relationship is bearing fruit, with students leaving the Academy to embark upon exciting futures.
The UCL Academy Sixth Form students move on to University, other further study, apprenticeships, or employment. Irrespective of their route, they have the continuous support of the Careers department, tutors and other members of staff while they navigate their way through this pivotal time in their education.
While 40% of our students are offered places at Russell Group Universities, many others go to prestigious universities and exciting futures elsewhere.
