Oxbridge

The school is committed to providing full support for students who wish to apply to the universities of Oxford and Cambridge. The school’s academic scholars and gifted and talented students are encouraged to attend the Archer Martin Society (Fourth, Remove and Fifth Form) and the Mitre Club (Sixth Form) to develop the academic interests and the ambition required to make a competitive application to these institutions.

In the Sixth Form, students who wish to be on the ‘Oxbridge List’ receive support from the relevant Head of Department or departmental Oxbridge Tutor to develop their ‘super-curricular’ activities such as reading and attending lectures and preparation for the relevant entrance exams. In September of the Upper Sixth there are mock entrance exams and boys are guided through the application process by the Head of UCAS and Master in Charge of Oxbridge. Students are provided with additional departmental support prior to interview and they are given at least two formal mock interviews.

In recent years an increasing number of students have decided to apply to Oxford and Cambridge and numbers of successful applications have been very healthy.
