Pupils have a range of options available to them after their A Levels and have been speaking about these in PSHE sessions during the Lower Sixth. The following presentation helps parents and carers understand some of these options ahead of the UCAS application process starting in May.

Applying to university
The University and College Admissions Service (UCAS) processes applications to Higher Education. If any pupil wishes to apply to university, we help them through the process by offering the following:
Those interested in applying to Oxbridge, who have to meet an earlier application deadline, are supported through regular meetings with the Deputy Headteacher. They visit the Oxford and Cambridge Student Conferences, attend an information evening held in Sevenoaks, and are offered attendance at the Cambridge Roadshow held locally. In addition, we have visits from recent TWGGS leavers who offer advice, and from admissions tutors from the universities.
Those interested in applying for Medicine, Dentistry and Veterinary Science, who also have to meet an earlier application deadlines, are supported through regular meetings with the Deputy Headteacher, MedSoc meetings, and attendance at a Careers in Medicine event held at the local hospital. They are also offered attendance at the Kent Medical Days, use of the Medic Mentor website and the Medic Portal website, as well as dedicated lunch time talks and help with obtaining work experience.
