Most of our students have ambitions for moving abroad following sixth form to study at university. Every year these graduates follow in the footsteps of Nord Anglia Education alumni who have attended some of the world’s best universities and whose success stories are inspiring proof of the exciting pathways which await them. We have prepared thousands of past students for the transition from school to university, and have long perfected the recipe for ensuring them the best future international pathway. So, what’s key to setting them up for success?
Internationally recognised qualifications
At BSY sixth form, students will study internationally recognised and academically rigorous A Level qualifications.
When designing the Key Stage 5 curriculum at BSY we had a very clear, and strategic vision for Sixth Form success. This vision is embedded throughout our curriculum and forms our commitment to ensure every BSY Sixth Form student receives:
Expert A Level teaching and learning
Invigorating enrichment opportunities
Inspirational pastoral, career and university support.
The result of this commitment is our unique and exciting ‘Individualised Pathway’ - an academically challenging and holistically balanced programme of education that allows students to flourish physically, intellectually, emotionally and ethically whilst truly preparing and inspiring them for success at university and life beyond.
Nord Anglia global connections
The right qualification and a stand-out university application is one important element on the journey to university, but equally as important is our role in educating students about where they could study and what it will be like. Our aim for every student is for them to leave our school with well placed expectations and their questions around their university destination answered. The global Nord Anglia family they are part of is crucial to this.
Being involved in our global community of schools gives students the opportunity to access local support in the country of their university of choice. Students across Nord Anglia schools have attended universities from Oxford and Cambridge in the UK, to Harvard and Princeton in America. In these countries and in a further 28, we have staff and alumni who work there and have attended university there. This wealth of knowledge is a valuable resource for students. Elsewhere, a student's best understanding of their future university abroad may be its website. At BSY we can connect students with experienced individuals who can bring the university destination to life.
