University Destinations

From here to anywhere. Every year our boys win places at leading universities here in the UK and around the world, including Oxford and Cambridge, Russell Group and US universities, including Harvard and MIT, the significant majority to their first choice destination. 



2023 Statistics



90 per cent of Tonbridge students go on to attend Russell Group and high-tariff universities worldwide. 




Twenty-four places at Oxbridge were secured by our students in 2023

In 2023, Tonbridge’s Upper Sixth received a record number of offers – more than 670 – from a wide range of top universities. More than 65 per cent of boys received four or more offers, which is well above the national average.

While traditional degree courses such as Politics, Philosophy, History, Business, Geography, Engineering, Languages and Economics continue to prove popular, some Tonbridge leavers already have a particular career focus. 

One student will be going straight into the city, working for Barclays as part of a highly sought after degree apprenticeship. Another will be going to Central St Martins on an Art Foundation year.



Studying abroad

As well as those moving on to UK universities, a number of Tonbridge leavers progress to leading universities around the globe.
