Year 13 Set Their Sights High
Our year 13 students have been working exceptionally hard during the past term. UCAS deadlines are fast approaching and they have been busy deciding which university and course they wish to pursue. They have all spent a huge amount of time in preparation for this including writing personal statements and having some very valuable interview practise. Four of our students have done extremely well and have been offered interviews at Oxbridge, two of the top universities in the country. In preparation for this, they have had mock interviews with 6th form staff and Oxbridge admissions tutors and have attended residential courses at Cambridge during the Easter holidays. They are understandably nervous, but we are very hopeful and keeping our fingers crossed for them. Several students have been considering apprenticeships at either advanced or degree level and have been equally busy securing companies and suitable employers.
