The School does everything it can to prepare pupils for university. The Head of Sixth Form, Housemasters and Tutors work closely with the pupils in helping them to select the courses best suited to their ability and interests.
Discussion about Universities begin in Yr11. Yr 12 is a very important year for this process and is a time when pupils should undertake their own research. It is during this Year 12 that pupils are prepared for IELTS, TOEFL, SAT, ACT and Common App under the guidance of specialist teachers.
The School offers a University trip to the UK and it is strongly recommended that pupils join this.
It is expected that all pupils at the School will enter universities overseas, with the majority going to the UK and US. The School gives guidance and support for the application process and advice on the type of degree courses available.
It is essential that both pupils and parents are realistic in their aspirations. Internal assessments, reports, school examinations, IELTS (or equivalent) and IGCSE results all give a clear indication of a pupil’s progress and potential.
In recent years pupils from the School have been offered places at excellent universities including Cambridge, London, Imperial, Edinburgh, Warwick and NYU.
