UCAS Day 2021

As we move towards the end of the summer term the sixth form students get the opportunity to spend a whole day working towards their UCAS applications during UCAS day.

Unsurprisingly UCAS day 2021 due to Covid restrictions was much more different to previous years. That said, as a team we felt it was still vital that our year 12 students had the opportunity to begin the process of completing their applications.

UCAS day is put on to allow our students the opportunity to prepare themselves for the University application process or if University is not for them they get the opportunity to research and apply for apprenticeships or potential forms of employment for when they leave school in 2022.

Due to Covid restrictions not allowing us to have outside visitors. Mrs Walton and the Year 12 tutors gave talks on student life and student finance. The talks were well received by the students with many students identifying courses and university institutions they would like to attend.

They will now spend the rest of the summer writing up their personal statements which will be reviewed when the students return to school in September.  If students are applying for medicine, dentistry, veterinary medicine/science courses, as well as all courses at the universities of Oxford and Cambridge the deadline is the 15th October.
