About The Perse

Exam Performance 2013

In 2013, 33% of Perse A level entries were graded at A*, and more than half of Perse students achieved A* or A grades in all their subjects. 90% of GCSE entries were graded at A* - A.

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 2013, 30 students were offered places at Oxbridge, 11 at medical schools, and 1 at an elite overseas university. The Sutton Trust identified us as the most successful school or college in the region for getting pupils into the top 30 universities.
