Higher Education & Universities
We aim to get you where you want to go
The School recognises that a number of pathways exist for higher education and we are dedicated to supporting students towards their educational journey post-18.
The Sixth Form at St Margaret’s offers a bespoke programme which begins in Year 12 and is taught through lessons that cover a range of post-18 options. This includes the research and discussions that lead to specialisation and enrichment, preparing students to make a competitive application.
Our comprehensive programme offers one-to-one support to students during this important time. In the Spring term of Year 12, students are paired up with a subject supervisor. During these meetings, they are guided and supported, given direction, and helped with specialist aspects of preparation, such as interview and entrance examination practice, which continues well beyond the application process.
The Sixth Form team work closely with students and offer higher education evenings to which parents are also invited.
We host university and careers’ fairs, enrichment weeks for Year 12 to support them in their UCAS application, guidance with writing personal statements, understanding personal branding and CV writing, university visits, taster lectures, apprenticeship mock assessment centres, as well as guidance on student finance, living away from home and budgeting, mental health and making the most of student life.
Our General Studies speaker programme runs weekly and offers eclectic topics. Part of this involves workshops on public speaking, careers and interview practice to support the UCAS process.
