Does anyone know what percentage of girls in the sixth form go on to Oxbridge at Westminster? I know overall it sends the most pupils to Oxbridge but I prefer single sex schools and was wondering if they send the same percentage of boys as the other top boys schools (around 30 - 37%) and only bump their score up to 48-50% because they take the cream of girls in the sixth form. If for example they only send 25% of their boys then I would have thought the other schools would be better as they have not educated these girls. :?

I am sorry I do not know the answer; but I would have thought that the school should be pleased to respond if you ask them the right questions - but to be on the safe side ask for numbers of boys and girls so that you can do the percentages yourself. Make sure they do not "inflate" the Oxbridge numbers for one year by telling you the numbers commencing at Oxbridge last September as this will include pupils from two year groups one batch of which will have taken a gap year and one batch of which will not.
