Applying to University

We are very proud of the support we give to students when applying to university. A large portion of tutor time is devoted to appying to university and we provide various documents to guide the way including a personal statement guide and a help sheet for completing the online application form.

We also hold a Progression Day in the June of Year 12 and a Progression Evening for Parents and students on the same day. This gives guidance about the university application process, writing the personal statement, researching courses and universities and finance. A number of universities attend to offer personal statement workshops.

All sixth form students are given access to Unifrog website which is an excellent online tool to support students in searching for the best university course for them as well as helping students find apprenticeships if that is their preferred option.
