Student Support

The support for students is intensive; tutor guidance and advice provides a clear focus on study and helps students through the application process for university. There is mutual respect between teachers and students and students say that they appreciate the level of individual support. Parents are also kept closely in touch with their daughter’s progress.

Student Experience

All students have the opportunity to enhance their experience through extra- curricular activities such as volunteering, mentoring younger students, sports leadership and citizenship activities.

Students progress to have successful careers in Pharmacy, Law, Medicine and Midwifery to name but a few.
