All students in Year 12 have access to the full programme to support options post 18. Registration activities, talks, lectures, speakers and presentations form the basis of the programme which begins in the September of Year 12. There is a parent and student talk in July to support parents and students with post 18 options as they commence towards Year 13. Year 12 students are actively encouraged to take full advantage of the University Summer Schools such as the Sutton Trust Programme (UK & US), UNIQ (Oxford University) and others.
UCAS Applications are started in the summer term to ensure students are able to take advantage of the maximum time to create a strong application. References are written in collaboration with the student’s subject specialists, Mentors and Head of Sixth Form/Deputy Heads of Sixth Form in the autumn term of Y13. Leading lecturers and professionals, such as Jane Marshal from Imperial College London visits the school to support with mock interviews and a personal statement talk.
