Year 13 destinations 2023

We are committed to ensuring that all our students have every opportunity which is available to them when they leave Cromwell. 2023 was a good year for our Year 13 students, 64% of the Year 13 cohort in total applied and 29% of these were to Russell group universities including University of Nottingham, University of Sheffield and the University of Durham. Cromwell Sixth form students are reading urban planning to, aerospace engineering and sports journalism, digital marketing, to psychology and Law, to mention only a few. One of our students has decided to gain employment and complete a law degree via the Open university.

Those not going to university are pursuing varied and exciting careers including the army, joining the police apprenticeship scheme, higher level apprenticeships with Perkins engines, BGL insurance, MBDA missile systems and Leeding’s property group.
