Progression

This section details the support we offer to our students to help them progress onto higher education, training or employment. First here are some statistics for you:

Career Impact Guide• 941 students applied to go to university in 2017
• More than 100 students have progressed to Oxbridge or to Medical courses  in the last 10 years

As you can see, the majority of our students do go onto university, despite rises in tuition fees, as students recognise it is an investment into their future. Every student has an academic coach, who will assist them in making their UCAS application. This includes guidance with writing personal statements and references.

Read about some of the most recent success stories of students progressing onto university by checking out the latest Student Case Studies.
