With the increasingly competitive and fast changing higher education market, expert information, advice and guidance has never been more important.
Our Head of Sixth Form, Ms Emma Bell, sits on the UCAS Secondary Education Advisory Group and has many years’ experience of helping students with applications to leading universities both in the UK and overseas.
As well as extension and enrichment organised by departments, our up-to-date and varied sixth form next steps provision includes visits from university admissions tutors and apprenticeship providers as well as one-to-one consultations.
The majority of our girls go on to leading research universities, with 52% of girls taking up places at the Top 20 UK universities in September 2014. Over the three years 2011-14 inclusive, 92% of the girls taking up university places did so at one of 37 pre-1992 universities. Girls are also increasingly recognising the opportunities available through higher level apprenticeships and we have links with Accenture, Ernst and Young and Jaguar Land Rover amongst other major global companies.
We are absolutely committed to helping all girls find their route to success and are incredibly proud of all our alumnae.
