In September 2022 we asked our Old Runnymedians to complete a survey to give us an update on what they are doing, where they live and much more! It was great to hear from our former pupils and learn about all the amazing things they have been up to. We are delighted to be able to share some of the results with you in the infographic below.
Although most Old Runnymedians now live in Spain, many can be found living all over the world, in particular in the UK, US, Canada, France, Italy, Portugal, India and Argentina.
Most Old Runnymedians have studied abroad, with the majority heading to the UK and US. Some stay on in the country they studied in, whilst others have moved elsewhere after finishing their degree, many returning to Spain.
We were delighted to hear how happy Old Runnymedians were with their university destinations and courses. They have gone on to study a wide range of exciting courses; the most popular ones embarked upon have been Business / Management, Engineering and Economics. It was great to learn how much Old Runnymedians enjoy learning, with just over a third going on to study a postgraduate course.
The most popular UK university destinations were UCL, Bath, Oxford, Warwick and Imperial. The most popular US destinations were Columbia, Babson and NYU and the most popular Spanish destinations were IE, Complutense and Autónoma.
Our Old Runnymedians have gone on to lead successful and interesting professional lives. The most common job titles shared were ‘company directors’, ‘consultants’, ‘entrepreneurs’, ‘engineers’, ‘professors’ amongst others.
It was great to be able to read some heartwarming comments about our Old Runnymedians’ memories of school life and we also found their advice for our current pupils incredibly helpful. We were thrilled to learn many of our Old Runnymedians would be willing to either come in to talk to our pupils or act as Mentors for individuals. We look forward to setting up a Mentorship scheme in due course and getting to learn more from our wonderful former pupils.
Many many thanks to those who took the time to fill out the survey.
