University Applications

The School provides plenty of information and support for those of our students who apply to Higher Education Institutions through UCAS. The Careers programme in Senior School, organised by Mrs McKinley, provides pupils with the knowledge required to research the available courses and also the skills necessary to present effective applications. This includes the writing of personal statements highlighting personal achievements both inside and outside school.

All applications are fully checked by teaching Staff and a team of Senior Section Staff utilise information gleaned from a wide range of sources to produce comprehensive references. A number of subjects including Medicine and all Oxford/Cambridge courses need to applied for somewhat earlier than for other courses, and Dr McBride has amassed the expertise necessary to assist individual pupils in these “fast track” subjects.
