Each year we celebrate the success of students through awards and events, but this success is nowhere more apparent than in the destinations of our students. Every year all of our students from Year 13 leave Silverdale to take up a university place, a further education course, an apprenticeship or a job.

Last year over 59% of our students successfully progressed to a prestigious Russell Group university, with a significant number of former students now attending both Oxford and Cambridge.
