  • Support with work-experience placements throughout the Sixth-Form.
All Departments support individuals in their university applications by running seminars and supporting individuals with their Personal Statements. 
 
Oxbridge: Beyond this, Deputy-Head Mr Charlwood runs an extremely thorough programme for Oxbridge candidates. This includes highly focused support throughout every stage of the process. 
 
We also run nationally recognised Subject Conferences – In 2018 this was focused upon providing specialist information and advice about the huge variety of medical professions and how to plan a career pathway.
