    Higher Education Evening

    A very successful evening is run annually for students and parents interested in higher education. Unfortunately current circumstances do not allow us to host an in-person event, so Mrs Macpherson has produced three videos covering the information we would normally discuss on the evening.

    These videos are specifically intended for a September 2022 entry to university i.e. students who are Year 12 in the 2020/21 academic year. If any Year 12 student has any queries, they should speak to their form tutor who will be able to advise them.

    These videos are also available as a YouTube playlist here.

    Part 1 - Introduction and the Higher Education Landscape (22 min)


    Part 2 - Predicted Grades (15 min)


    Part 3 - The Application Process (21 min)
