We are committed to academic excellence and part of this involves supporting and guiding students who have the necessary ambition and ability to apply to Oxford or Cambridge.

We are delighted to be one of the select number of school sixth forms to have a formal partnership with Lancaster, a top ten university. This relationship offers students opportunities for residential visits, advice and guidance from admissions tutors in addition to a GUARANTEE of an offer at this prestigious university.
Students who wish to enter one of the professional - medicine, veterinary science, dentistry, law, teaching - are offered support from one of our pre-professional programmes. This includes a sustained period of work experience, presentations by experts, and individual coaching for university applications and interviews. This is a comprehensive package which puts students in a strong position when they apply for highly competitive courses.
Students are offered a weekly programme of talks and lectures from visiting academics and employers. these sessions offer a valuable insight into topics beyond the exam specification as well as providing information about new careers and courses.
