St Paul’s School is proud of its outstanding record of achieving university success. Virtually all our Upper Eighth (Year 13) students continue their education at university.

Of our pupils who choose to study in the UK, the largest proportion go on to Oxford and Cambridge – an average of 25.1% over the last five years.  

In 2021, 142 pupils (97% of St Paul’s School pupils starting university in the UK in 2021 or deferred entry for 2022) gained places at Russell Group universities including UCL and Imperial which are within the top 10 in the 2021 QS World University Rankings.

35 pupils received offers from top North American universities including MIT, Stanford, Harvard, and University of Chicago , which are also within the top 10 in the QS World University Rankings, and one student to another international institution.  

A small number of our pupils choose to take GAP years, paid employment, apprenticeships or internships.
