University Destinations

The number of our students going on to college and university continues to increase, with over 98% of last year’s leavers being accepted on to post-16 courses, including a wide range of A-levels as well as vocational qualifications. We have established strong links with local Further and Higher Education providers, meaning that Droylsden Academy students have many opportunities to visit and experience different colleges and universities before applying, including visits to Oxford and Cambridge where some of our former students now study. Your child will be encouraged and driven to pursue the most aspirational career path available to them and our careers programme now begins in Year 7 to allow students to begin to consider and shape their future as early as possible, understanding and experiencing the wide range of exciting opportunities available to them.

Our website will soon allow you to read the stories of some of our former students to gain an insight into their experiences of life at university.
