Argentina

Being a seventeen year old in England is completely different to being a teenager in Kazakhstan. In England, you learn that the opportunities available to people are endless. I heard a lot of stories about volunteering abroad, something which is especially popular in UK.

Bristol University trip

Before applying to university at the start of their A2 year, it is absolutely vital that students visit any university which they are seriously considering applying to. Universities differ to such great extents, both in their general characteristics and in the courses they offer. There are also major differences between similar courses at different universities; so while it may seem that a Biochemistry course at Birmingham will be the same as one at Liverpool, there will often be massive difference, both in course content and structure.

Aston University visit

As part of our University Support Programme, our Year 12 students visited Aston University to gain an insight into what it would be like to study at a campus-based university. They kindly organised a careers day which started with an enormously entertaining and thought-provoking talk on the legal profession from Odette Hutchinson, who was recently awarded UK Law Teacher of the Year, and Kris Lines, who is the LLB Law programme director.

University Support Program

Each year our Year 12 students take part in a two week schedule that starts the process of preparing for university. Students attend workshops including How to Write an Outstanding Personal Statement, Broadening Your Appeal (Extended Project Qualification and voluntary work), Student Finance and a variety of careers talks focusing on vocations such as Medicine, Dentistry and Veterinary Medicine.

London

The Friendly Spider Programme

Psychology students visited London Zoo, exploring reptile and insect enclosures as well as learning more about phobias and the physical therapies covered in the A level course. By the end of the day, and following group hypnosis, some were brave enough to hold a tarantula!
