Another reason to join St Augustine’s Sixth Form is the focus we already have on your next steps after A-Levels and potentially into University. The UCAS application support at St Augustine’s Sixth Form is excellent. We have a committed expert within the Sixth Form Team who supports every student through the process, alongside personal tutors who guide applications and produce references. Each application and Personal Statement is reviewed by at least two experienced teachers and no application is sent without close scrutiny. This team is also confident with early applications, a process needed for Medical students, so that no opportunities or deadlines are missed and every student has the best opportunity to take their next steps in education, studying the subjects they are interested in, at Universities of their choice.
It is important to realise that applications are made on predicted grades and this is why academic monitoring is thorough from the very start of Year 12 and is central to advice and guidance given. Inflated grades will not lead to University placements, so our open and honest approach, encouraging hard work and effort, will ultimately lead to the very best outcomes possible. We run form group sessions, after school workshops, assemblies and Year Team meetings alongside external events in order to help you make the best decision for you and have been very successful with the transfer of our students onto University courses, and beyond. As is our approach across the board, we will help you get the very best grades, opportunities and placements if you put the hard work and effort in.
