The future looks bright for our Year 13 girls!

Our Year 13 pupils, some of whom are pictured below, all sent their university applications in well before the January UCAS deadline, thanks to guidance and encouragement from Mrs Grove, Mrs Collin and Mr Crump – and the offers have been rolling in!

All the girls have had at least one offer or interview invitation so far, with almost a quarter already holding offers from all five of their university choices.

This is fantastic news and the Sixth Form is buzzing as new offers appear. Well done to the girls for working hard on their personal statements and preparing their application forms so promptly last term.

The girls’ chosen courses are in subject areas as diverse as ever and include geography, interior architecture and design, theatrical make-up, chemistry, business and marketing.

Well done to our girls and also to our Sixth Form tutors and teachers who invest so much time in advising pupils on where to apply for university. Their assistance with girls’ applications and personal statements obviously pays dividends!
