About Us

Welcome to Leaving School, one of the UK’s leading educational websites as featured in The Times.

Leaving School was established with one simple goal: to make students’ lives easier and their futures brighter, and we remain committed to supporting students through their education. Indeed, we pride ourselves on helping students find all the educational resources they need for planning their next step. On our site, you’ll find advice and revision resources for GCSEs and A-Levels, pages of university and apprenticeships information, and guidance on how to write your personal statement. All these pages are updated weekly so that we can provide you with the most up to date options available to you.

What will you find at LeavingSchool.co.uk?

Search for a course

Thinking of applying to university or college? To help you work out what you want to study, we’ve listed the thousands upon thousands of courses available at universities and colleges from across the UK. To search through them all, you can search for a specific subject, for example, by typing in a keyword or by adding a location.

Institution profiles

Understanding more about the place you hope to spend the next few years studying is important. Our institution profiles allow you to browse hundreds of course providers with up to date information, and all the statistics and links you need to make an informed decision.

Revision guides

Revising for GCSEs or A-Levels is, by nature, stressful – we understand this. To help you prepare for your exams, we’ve created a wide range of subject guides, each covering multiple topics so that no matter which exam board your sitting, or the syllabus you’ve studied, you will find something to help you.


Apprenticeships are a fantastic route for those who don’t think university or college is right for them. As a perhaps less travelled route, it can be difficult to know where to start. We’ve listed thousands of apprenticeships on offer in the UK, and all of these pages are updated weekly so that you’ll never miss out on a great opportunity! You can search for the apprenticeship you want by keyword, apprenticeship level, or location.

Personal statement guides

These guides are designed to help students navigate the process of applying to university or college. Here you’ll find plenty of guides on writing the perfect personal statement. We’ve also provided a wealth of personal statement examples, but please note these are only for your reference and cannot be copied or used.
