Want to go to University

SPH has an extensive programme of support for university applications including Medical, Engineering and Oxbridge applicants, projects with the Sutton Trust and Eton Summer School. In addition, our students have been successful in applying for apprenticeships with top firms such as Rolls Royce.

Most years we have achieved two or three successful applications to Oxford or Cambridge University. Ninety-six percent of students tend to progress to University and around one quarter to the top twenty-four Russell Group of universities. SPH starts a UCAS support programme with all students in July of Year 12.

It is particularly important that students receive a reference that reflects them and their achievements and so we work closely with students from the outset. One-to-one interviews are central to the support we offer as the programme progresses. Most students will have many interviews to discuss their personal statement and choices with their tutor.
