In Year 13, sixth formers make their applications to universities across the world as A levels are globally accepted as high standard courses. Many apply to the UK through the UCAS system managed by the Head of Sixth Form. Early applications are well received by the universities and this year we are proud that two of our students have already been selected for interview by Cambridge University and Imperial London. Students in Year 13 have already received offers from Durham, Warwick, Bath, Queen Mary College London and we are eagerly awaiting many more decisions. Closing dates for applications is January 15th 2021 so our students are well ahead. Every new offer is met with excitement as the options for higher education grow and grow!
Sixth form is the bridging gap between IGCSE and university. It is the time for students to flourish in their chosen subjects, to become independent learners who are self-motivated, to seek out leadership opportunities and to gain the life skills needed that will ensure success at university when they move away from home for the first time.
It is not always easy and there are always hiccups along the way, but our sixth formers are good at sharing daily inspirations to stay positive - The Sixth Form is a great place to be.
