Recent data published by the Higher Education Statistics Agency (HESA) shows that our ex-students have gone on to excel at degree level. The data collected was for students who graduated in academic year 2016/17 from UK higher education institutions, including 405 former Notre Dame students. A grand total of 79.61% received either a first class or upper second class honours degree, a result which sits above the national average of 78.62% for sixth form colleges across the UK.
For students who went on to study at Russell Group universities, degree classifications for our alumni far exceeded the sixth form college national average of 87.78% with a whopping 90% awarded first class and upper second class honours. This percentage also exceeded the national average for independent schools in the UK!
And students whose parents didn’t have a higher education qualification did even better: 32.09% of them gained a first class degree, compared to a national average of 24.01% across UK sixth form colleges!
Congratulations to all our former students who worked so hard to achieve such an elevated level of success.
