As our students become young adults, the British system requires that study becomes more focused on particular subjects. At the end of Year 11, pupils usually choose three or four subjects for the next phase of their studies: A Levels, which begin in Year 12. This choice of subjects will influence which degree course they take at university and we take great pride in supporting all our pupils through the exciting decisions that lie ahead of them. When students have to make academic choices at GCSE, A Level and for university entrance, they each get individual support and advice directly from our Principal and our dedicated university entrance team.
Our reputation is built upon the success of our pupils. We are educational experts; we know how to get the very best from our pupils. The years when students are becoming young adults, at the same time as working hard in their studies, are hugely important. We challenge and support pupils, so that they are able to achieve their very best academically and personally. We have the expertise to get them through the exams and the experience to guide them owards their chosen university.
Top universities increasingly look at the whole person, not just exam results. We know how to inspire and develop the passions and interests of our young learners outside of the curriculum. We keep up to date with the different requirements of universities in the UK and around the world so that our pupils are well-informed and can make the right decisions for their future.


In 2016, one hundred percent (100%) of Year 13 leavers gained a place at a university of their choice. Generally universities look most favourably upon applications from schools such as ours, as they appreciate that the multi-cultural, multi-lingual nature of our students will enrich their undergraduate life.

Many students from KCSM go on to study at universities within the Russell Group (Top 20 universities in the United Kingdom).
