Exam Results and University Success

At Buckswood we specialise in finding and nurturing talent.


When scholars reach the sixth form, that talent is focussed and channelled with a view to future career prospects. Armed with an individually tailored portfolio of wide-ranging experiences, skills and qualifications, a Buckswood graduate really does stand out from the crowd and has a CV that opens doors.


No future employer expects to spoon-feed an employee, and so our young adults are given the skills required for a successful life of increased self-discipline, independence and self-motivated study. Buckswood’s 100% university entry rate demonstrates how this philosophy is working practice, with strong A level and IB options reflecting the importance of university core subjects.
