Each year around 85% of our leavers go straight on to university to study their chosen course. Our highly experienced team of tutors and Heads of Year provide guidance to our Year 12 students to assist them in preparing their applications to UCAS.

DHSB has an excellent record of sending students to Oxbridge and medical schools. We continue to support our Gap year students in their applications the year after they leave us.

All students receive guidance on future careers from the school’s careers team – our aim is to ensure all boys and girls are fully prepared for their chosen path after they leave DHSB.
