HE+ / Early Applicant Scheme
Each year around 80% of our Year 13 students apply to progress onto Higher Education through UCAS.
A number of trips and visits, as well as talks and seminars from our partner institutions throughout Year 12 and Year 13 ensures that students are given the support and information necessary to make a competitive application to a wide range of courses at universities up and down the country.
We are part of HE+, a programme designed for students who are prospective applicants for Oxford or Cambridge universities or for medicine, dentistry or veterinary science courses, or who intend to apply for Russell Group universities. The programme is designed to enable students to receive specific one-to-one support with their university applications and personal statement and to have access to a range of university and course related activities.
Students will be enrolled on the HE+ programme, which is run by Cambridge University in order to support students applying to any of the Russell Group universities, which are the top research focused universities in the UK and therefore have the most competitive application processes. As part of the HE+ and Early Applicants pathway, students will have the opportunity to attend subject seminars, applications workshops university summer schools and residential visits, including the chance to visit both Oxford and Cambridge universities.
