Many of our students are moving onto a wide variety of universities to study a broad range of subjects. These include University of Bath (Maths, Mechanical engineering, Maths/ Physics), Exeter University (Physics, History), Loughborough (Mechanical Engineering). Aberdeen university (Mechanical engineering) Plymouth Uni (Environmental Science), Uni of St Andrew (Astro Physics), Southampton ( Spanish, English ) Warwick Uni (Biomedical sciences), Cardiff uni ( Geography), Keele uni (History)
From the cohort of 115 students, just over half (64) are moving on to University with 84% gaining places at their first choice and the remaining students getting their second choice. This is a fantastic achievement.
The staff and governors would like to congratulate all leaving students on their results and wish them the very best of luck in their next steps; be that in employment, training or higher education. We hope they have enjoyed their time at Huish Episcopi Academy and remain in contact with us as part of our growing alumni.
