As part of Wetherby Senior’s commitment to supporting boys in their higher education ambitions, our alumni are now studying at top universities across the UK, continental Europe and North America.
Wetherby Senior’s Class of 23 are set to join top universities across the UK, continental Europe and North America this autumn.
Following success in their A Levels, the destinations list for Wetherby Senior’s outgoing Year 13 and 2022 gap year students means:
Wetherby Senior’s newest alumni are set to read a variety of challenging and interesting degree programmes. Of those remaining in the UK, more than a quarter will be studying a STEM subject, with courses ranging from aeronautical engineering at Glasgow to zoology at Bristol.
A third of this outgoing cohort will now study a course related to business, economics or management, while around 30% of those taking humanities options include education at Cambridge, filmmaking at the London Film Academy, film studies at UCL, and two boys set to read classics at Exeter.
Wetherby Senior encourages university ambition and offers bespoke support at a much earlier age than most other schools, with each boy assigned their own university advisor from Year 11 onwards. Applying to study abroad is a specialism of our School and, in line with previous years, around 20% of our Class of 23 will now study outside the UK. This includes seven boys joining world-class universities across the USA like the University of Pennsylvania (Ivy League), New York University (three alumni, including one studying within the prestigious Stern School of Business), University of Southern California and Notre Dame University.
