GUIDANCE AND SUPPORT

A team of specialist tutors guides students through the entire UCAS process and professional careers advice is available. The expertise of academic staff provides the best possible support for students with their HE or career aims. Individual student attention is at the very centre of what we do. Your tutors will monitor your academic progress, listen to your concerns and support you in your personal development. Students who wish to apply for Oxford or Cambridge and medical/veterinary-based courses will benefit from specialist advice and support.

The extensive tutor programme is tailored to the needs of our students and we aim to develop self confidence and encourage all students to actively participate in the life of the whole school and the local community.
