Dear Heythrop College,
Could you please disclose the percentage of domestic students who attended an independent school prior to enrolment?
For clarification, that is out of all current students from the United Kingdom, what is the percentage whose last school before entry was an independent (not state-run) school.
The preferred data would be for entrants to the academic year 2016/17, but if not the next available data-set.
Dear Mr McAllister
Please accept my apologies for the delay in responding to your enquiry.
Heythrop College will cease to be part of the University of London in 2018 and our last intake to undergraduate programmes was in 2014 (apart from a small intake in 2015 to the Bachelor of Divinity/Baccalaureate in Sacred Theology, a professional qualification for Roman Catholic priests, which is undertaken by mature students rather than school leavers).
The data we have available the percentage from state schools of the total full-time first degree entrants. In 2014-15 this figure was 89.2%; in 2013-14 88.3%; in 2012-13 85.3%; and in 2011-12 83.2%.
