Students who have exceptional prior attainment at GCSE will be invited to be part of the Oxbridge Programme in our Sixth Form. The group takes part in a range of additional activities across the year to prepare for the additional demands of an application to Oxford and Cambridge Universities.
Our Oxbridge programme prepares students to apply to the top universities by covering three key areas:
- Understanding elite academic institutions and how to apply
- Excelling academically at A level and achieving an A* grade
- Wider academic reading and research
Students on the Oxbridge programme will take part in trips and academic sessions across the year provided by the school, as well as gaining support through Ark’s Project Oxbridge and The Access Project’s Oxbridge Society. They will receive mock interview support, assistance with revising for their admissions tests and suggested reading lists to support them with their application.
