The Gateway Programme was established in 2014 to inspire and support our most able students in securing places at the best universities in the country.
We recognise that achieving excellent grades is only one aspect of securing a university place and the aim of the Gateway Programme is to support our students in developing the specialised interview and thinking skills required to excel in the pressurised atmosphere of an interview for Oxbridge or medical school.
Students are selected based on their strong interest in studying at Oxbridge or a medical related course and their successful GCSE profile based on a minimum of 5 A* grades. Those on the programme are offered a personalised package of support involving university visits and the chance to hear from people who are currently undertaking post and undergraduate qualifications.
Students are signposted towards, and encouraged to take part in, super-curricular activities and we regularly run mock interviews and subject specific tutorials to develop students’ thinking skills.
We continue to be proud of the increasing numbers of our students who have secured places on such competitive courses.
