Supporting university applications
We provide substantial support for those applying to the most competitive courses, including Oxbridge and Medicine, using the SCHOLA system resources. We are part of the New College, Oxford Step Up programme and the Christ Church College, Oxford Horizons Programme. In addition, individual departments offer specialist help on how to tackle the entrance exams and on writing compelling personal statements. We also take part in St Olave’s grammar school interview preparation day in November each year.
We have a Sixth Form Learning Mentor dedicated to the UCAS process, offering application advice, personal statement feedback, and general administrative support. We have a rigorous UCAS programme to inform students of the standard universities expect and ensure they submit high quality applications before the deadline.
