We are very proud of our Year 13’s who have submitted their applications to seven different countries combined. Of the 57 students who have applied, over 60% of them have already received offers while the balance are still waiting for responses which we hope to receive within the next month or so. Over 70% of our applications have been to the UK this year which is different from previous years with a sharp increase in applications to Asia. We look forward to sharing their success with you at a later date.

Meanwhile Year 12 students have begun their university application journey. Reflection, planning and researching is well underway and we have started our one to one interviews.

Their mission is to prepare students for the future, widening their horizons with an inspiring and varied programme of academic subject courses, activities, lectures and excursions.

Summer Programmes
It’s that time of the year again when universities and colleges around the world advertise summer programmes for students. Although we highly encourage our students to explore and dive into their passions through these programmes, these programmes are enrichment only and don’t affect college applications.

Interlochen Arts Camp. Interlochen offers a range of high-calibre arts programmes for students at every skill level, immersing them in a multidisciplinary, global arts community on their beautiful campus in northwest Michigan. For more information visit: http://camp.interlochen.org/
