We have comprehensive support to inspire and raise awareness of the breadth of opportunities that await our Sixth Form students, as well as to motivate them to achieve their full potential.
Oxbridge and University Preparation (including US and international university entrance)
We have a thorough preparation programme, including Russell-Up seminars which focus on applications to Russell Group universities and weekly meetings with Heads of Department and senior teachers as part of our university, Medical Sciences and Oxbridge preparation. Girls applying for courses at Oxford and Cambridge and for Medical Sciences and Law, are mentored by subject specialists in their academic departments and have regular discussion forum meetings with each other and with staff. In addition, we have a programme of interview preparation with our own academics and those from elsewhere.
We also prepare students for entry to US universities and elsewhere in Europe, including SAT classes in school.
Careers Guidance Programme
Careers support is available throughout a student's time in Sixth Form. The information is tailored to the needs of each individual, the research that is provided is accurate and up-to-date, delivered in a timely manner through individual one-to-one meetings and in PSHEEC, over the course of the two years.
Students are supported in all their post-18 options, whilst the majority of girls pursue Higher Education upon leaving Sixth Form, guidance is also provided on alternative options, including Apprenticeships, taking a Gap Year and job hunting.
A Careers Fair provides the perfect opportunity for students and their parents to find out about possible career choices and universities, alongside a range of lectures from our Alumnae and visiting speakers. Find out more about our Alumnae.
Girls and parents are kept up to date with the latest development events, including Taster days at universities, Summer Schools and Headstart - Engineering taster courses, as well as many more.
