We offer a structured and bespoke higher education service for Sixth Form students, which begins at the start of Year 12. We are on hand at every stage of the application process. Our Careers team also gives every girl the opportunity to extend her repertoire of work experience through placements, volunteering and workshops both in and outside school.

Although most of our students apply to study at UK universities, we offer expert support for applications to universities in the US, Europe and elsewhere. No one size fits all and we focus on helping the students make decisions that are right for them.
