Beyond St Cuthbert's

Where do our boys go?

St Cuthbert’s enjoys and maintains strong links with an extensive range of regional, national and international universities. Our pupils are known by these institutions not only for their intellectual rigour and academic strength, but for their ability to engage in challenge, exploration and engagement with diverse of ideas, concepts and interests. It is no surprise, therefore, that St Cuthbert’s has a well-deserved, outstanding reputation in preparing our pupils and students for future success.

For surely I know the plans I have for you, says the Lord... to give you a future with hope.

Jeremiah 29:11

Our service programme and co-curricular offer fosters an openness and desire to participate wholeheartedly in university academic, social, cultural and sporting life. Not all boys leave St Cuthbert’s for university and we also enjoy excellent links with local employers and apprenticeship providers. Click here to see our sixth formers destinations in recent years.

Careers Education, Information, Advice and Guidance (CEIAG) at St Cuthbert’s leads to destination outcomes that place us amongst the top schools in the North East both in terms of university entrance and apprenticeship take up - this consistent achievement meant we received the accolade of North East School of the Year 2018-19 from the Sunday Times Parent Power survey.

Year on year we have increased the numbers of Sixth Form students moving on to study at Oxbridge, at research-led Russell Group universities, reading medicine or dentistry and winning high level paid apprenticeships.

Our careers strategy seeks to help pupils and students understand the range of opportunities available to them in today’s economy and acquire the skills and qualifications they need to succeed in the workplaces of the future. Our work with the Northeast local enterprise partnership, the ASK programme, Newcastle United Foundation and Blueprint for all allows pupils to receive market-leading advice from an array of successful local businesses through mock interviews, presentations, visits and more. Our partnership with Global Bridge embedding the Skills Builder programme enables St Cuthbert’s boys to learn the soft skills required to succeed in the workplace and beyond.
