Oxbridge Preparation

Oxbridge Preparation

Supporting and encouraging you to pursue the highest aspirations is part of the College ethos. If you decide that you would like to pursue the goal of a place at Oxford or Cambridge, we will provide a wealth of dedicated support to help you in your ambition.  

In the first instance, we will assess and discuss your choice of subject so we can optimise your chance of success. From there, working alongside our Oxbridge  Co-ordinator, we will ensure you are given the time and space you need to create your application.

We also provide practical support that includes:  

  • an Oxbridge mentor  who is  usually  the College Head of Department for  your  chosen course  
  • dedicated preparation lessons held in the Spring and Summer Terms  that cover  the administrative aspects of your  application and  your  academic development  
  • insights into the additional aptitude tests you might be asked  to take  as well as the provision of mock tests   
  • interview  practice with an external interviewer  as well as College interviewers  
  • trips to  Oxford and Cambridge  in the Summer Term, which we recommend you attend alongside  Open Day visits  that you organise separately   
  • regular liaison with  your  parents throughout the Oxbridge preparation process to ensure we are in partnership in support of your application.  

The value of our Oxbridge support is demonstrated in the success rate of our students.  In 2017, six College students applied for and were successful in securing a place at Oxford or Cambridge.
