We are proud of all our students at West Derby and aim to ensure that all students leave here ready for either further education or the world of work. We have helped students achieve a place to study at numerous UK universities including The University of Liverpool, Liverpool John Moores University, Liverpool Hope University, Edge Hill University, Manchester University, Leeds Metropolitan University, Sheffield Hallam University and Nottingham University. Our students have gone on to study high profile courses such as law, architecture, astrophysics, aeronautical engineering, journalism, media and psychology.

A large number of our students have also been successful in applying for apprenticeships, including; business administration, mechanical engineering, Royal Navy engineers, Network Rail, N-Power and with the NHS.
