We are out of county and DD achieved a score that will likely get her a place in Nonsuch. We are impressed with the school grounds and the results (GCSE/A level). However, looking at leavers' destination, it seems that the number of girls going to Oxford or Cambridge (8 in 2018) or doing medicine is not that high (a bit more than 20 in 2018), given its large intake of 210 girls. I'm wondering why the leavers destination data do not seem to match up against its excellent results?

Can existing or previous parents share your feedback on the strengths and weaknesses of the school? Has there been a change in culture or decline in academic standards in recent years, given the relatively low cutoff score from the last three years? I meant "decline" in a relative sense, as I'm sure the school is still excellent! How do the girls get along with each other? Are there problems of cliques and bullying?

Thank you in advance.

Which orther state school send more into Oxbridge? More than university, check what subject they are chosing?
