The majority of our Sixth Form students go on to study at University.
- 40% of our students received the accolade of “Norfolk County Scholar” – the County’s recognition of exceptional A Level performance
- 66% have progressed to university
- 20% went to Oxbridge or Russell Group universities
- 50% went into the top third universities
Between September 2018 and September 2019, the number of successful applications to University at Thorpe St Andrew School and Sixth Form was 87% against a national average of 76%.
Our UCAS programme is launched mid-March of Year 12 with a student conference and a parent information evening – further details are attached below:
Once UCAS opens, mid-June, dedicated time is set aside to the UCAS process to ensure the best head start to students’ applications. Parallel to this programme, those applying to Oxbridge, Medicine, Veterinary and Dentistry courses and Russell Group Universities will receive further intense support with their applications and interview techniques from our ORBIT (Oxbridge Russell Group Bridging and Intervention Team) support team.
Thanks to our dedicated and highly experienced tutors, by the end of November, all applications are sent to UCAS to ensure that our students have the best chances of being accepted by the University of their choice.
To support both students and parents in the application process, Students Finance UK are invited in to deliver talks in November of Year 13.
Other Post Sixth Form Routes
We understand that sometimes students are still unsure of which path to follow when they finish their Sixth Form studies. For this reason, we can offer our students career interviews with our impartial in-school Pathway Guidance Co-ordinator who will take the time to discuss, at length, the different possible pathways available Post-18.
