Experienced tutor team

Our experienced tutor team work closely with pupils to support their applications to University. Year 12 have a carefully planned programme during Tutor Periods, to research the courses they would like to study at Higher Education level combined with which Universities offer them.

The formal UCAS process commences with the formation of the Personal Statement which pupils begin in the summer term of Year 12. In addition to the form tutors expertise, we invite visiting speakers ranging from local Universities such as Aston and Birmingham to those further afield such as Oxford and Cambridge, to provide more detailed information regarding University applications and University life.

Parents are invited to attend a careers fair in March, this popular attend is supported by local and national businesses as well as a large number of higher educational establishments. The information provided is both informative and useful for future pathways.

In Year 13, pupils have access to a range of resources including practice university interview questions which are specific to a wide variety of Higher Education Courses. Mock interviews are provided to pupils by members within our Alumni including those who graduated to become Medics/Dentists or studied at Oxford/Cambridge.

Oxbridge applicants gain from our links with Girton College based at Cambridge University and Keble College in Oxford University.

Further information about applying for, and the process to join, Higher Education institutions can be found on the UNISTATS website and here.

A great website to allow you to find courses appropriate to your qualification and subject area of interest is available here.

There is much more information about University applications available from UCAS.
