Next month, year 12 students will be making a start on their university applications. As a means of support, we have planned a full day of application focused activities, which includes input from university admission tutors. Ms Mitchel and Mrs Locker have also arranged for the pupils to visit Newcastle University this term, where they can find out information about the courses that they may be interested in, and university life in general.

This is just the start of the very strict university application process.
