The School has a good record of success with regard to entry to Oxford and Cambridge. Likely candidates are advised on their aspirations from the start of the Lower Sixth and will want to engage fully with the additional enrichment opportunities offered by academic departments. They are then monitored by a member of staff responsible for Oxbridge applications whose task is to promote the general academic welfare of the group. There are presentations from Admissions Tutors and university visits, but the emphasis is on pupil initiative and work in academic departments, which provide mentoring for candidates in their particular subjects.
A Reading Party takes place in the Peak District in the first week of July to provide serious focus and momentum at the start of the summer holiday. In the autumn term there is a full programme of support for candidates preparing for tests and interviews.
