We pride ourselves on the quality of support we give to our pupils as they prepare for university. University guidance is given on both a group and individual basis. This ensures that each pupil’s individual aspirations are catered for and that they are well prepared for their life after our academy.

The majority of our pupils go on to Higher Education. They study a range of disciplines as diverse as medicine, law, accountancy, engineering, art or English.

Pupils are given 1-to-1 help with their personal statement, which accompanies their university application. UCAS references are compiled in detail by experienced staff. Each reference is reviewed fully by the Post 16 Pastoral Leader before submission.

Interview preparation, including mock interviews, is given to all pupils as part of the Tutorial programme. Visits are organised to over a dozen universities.
