UCAS applications

Approximately 75% of our year 13 2021 cohort applied to university and were successful in attaining a place. This page gives you some advice about where to start if you are thinking of applying to university.

The UCAS website is the main site with which to apply to university. Some specialist universities in Art or Music may request applications through their own institute, but this is rare. Additionally, our students are regularly advised and supported throughout Tutor sessions.
