The vast majority of our students apply to university through UCAS and they are successful in securing places on their preferred courses.  Each year a number of students decide to pursue gap year activities before commencing their undergraduate studies, and a small number of students opt to follow Art Foundation courses prior to a degree.  Our students progress onto a range of courses at many institutions across the country.  Since our first round of applications in 2006, 14 students have been offered places at Oxford and Cambridge Universities, three for English, four for History, three for Sciences and one each for Architecture, Maths, Music and Modern Languages.

The UCAS application process is launched in Year 12, and students are guided through their applications by experienced tutors during weekly enrichment sessions.  Applications are submitted in the Autumn term of Year 13 and students make decisions in regard to the offers they have received in the Spring.
