College prepares potential Oxbridge applicants from the Autumn Term of the Lower Sixth with a series of tutorials with Oxbridge mentors selected form the teaching staff. External mock interviews are held in both the Summer and Autumn Terms and tutorials are increased to cover preparation for any aptitude tests. Throughout the whole process the Higher Education Department monitors and meets with pupils to ensure that they are receiving, reading and acting upon any feedback and that progression is being made.
