    Sixth Form

    Our students benefit greatly from being part of a larger 11- 18 school community: they play an important leadership role as prefects, expedition leaders and sports captains.

About The Perse

Exam Performance 2015

In 2015, more than three-quarters of Perse A level entries were A* or A and 60% of Perse students achieved 3 or more A* or A grades. In 2015, 94% of GCSE entries were A* - A and The Perse was the top co-ed school in both The Times and The Telegraph GCSE league tables.

Three schools in one

We educate boys and girls from aged 3 - 18 on three separate sites. Children progress through three distinctive schools but benefit from being part of a larger institution with an integrated curriculum and pastoral care system and access to first class facilities.

University success

In 2015, 31 students gained places at Oxbridge. The Sutton Trust identified us as the most successful school or college in the region for getting pupils into the top 30 universities.
