The Head of Sixth Form, supported by a team of experienced Sixth Form mentors, oversees all university applications both in the UK and abroad. The process begins with a seminar/webinar for students and parents to explain the UCAS and university application process. Students can then attend the UCAS exhibition which includes representatives from all UK universities, as well as opportunities to speak to other employers such as the armed forces or investigate apprenticeships with companies such as Dyson.
All students receive 1:1 mentoring throughout the UCAS process, as well as support in applying for additional aptitude tests such as the BMAT and LNAT (for medicine and law).
For those students applying outside UCAS, whether that is universities outside of the UK, apprenticeships, or the world of work, the Sixth Form team is on hand to help with letters of application, supporting documentation, references, portfolio development and interview training.
The Crimson Education App also has valuable advice for university applicants, particularly those wishing to go to university outside of the UK. The app gives access to webinars and information as well as more bespoke advice and training for individuals.
