We have a tradition of securing places at the top universities, including Oxford and Cambridge, on prestigious courses such as Medicine and Veterinary and throughout our local partnership universities.

Through our CEIAG programme we provide support and guidance to students applying to university and we are delighted that each year the majority of students secure offers and places at their first choice universities. Destinations for students who completed their studies in summer 2016 included Oxford, Durham, Manchester, Leeds and Sheffield as well as more local universities including Staffordshire, Manchester Metropolitan, Derby, and Keele.

We are also committed to ensuring that students have access to research and consider universities to make informed decisions about the best route for them. As such, we encourage students to attend university work shops throughout the year and attend summer schools to experience university life. We are also proud of the links which we have established with universities who support us with talks, visits and mock interviews.
