Higher Education Programme

Our Higher Education Programme includes

  • Two year Higher Education Preparation Programme for all students
  • Opportunities to take part in residential courses, taster days, in-house workshops and seminars
  • Individual  help with personal statements
  • Targeted university interview preparation with an independent Higher Education Consultant
  • Information sessions on the UCAS applications process, university life and finance
  • Higher Education Evening for parents
  • Targeted work experience opportunities  
  • Master classes in a wide range of subjects
  • 'Centigrade' higher education selection programme
  • Targeted mentoring of Oxford, Cambridge, Medicine and Dentistry applicants

All students are guided in making successful applications suited to their interests and academic potential. Almost 100% of our Year 13 students proceed to Higher Education, usually straight after Year 13 but sometimes after a gap year. Our Student Destinations lists (see links below) show our students' success in gaining places on a range of excellent courses; we successfully prepare our students across a range of subjects to gain access onto highly competitive courses at leading universities including Oxford, Cambridge, Imperial and UCL. Every year a significant number of our students gain places on Medicine and Dentistry courses. This is an outstanding achievement and reflects the school's positive attitudes towards education and achievement.
