Future Focus

A page for university, apprenticeship or employment information:

Unifrog - this is a very useful application for students to explore and compare universities or national apprenticeships. The apprenticeships are updated every 24 hours and new ones are coming available every day. There are also tools available to support personal statements and CVs as well as a place to store vital information including competencies, activities and meetings. We also encourage parents to take a look!

UCASthe UCAS website is full of information for students who are considering university as their next steps - from their initial registration, through to university and course choices and advice on writing their personal statement[LR1] . The school will support students right the way through this process starting with UCAS registration in June kicking off our Futures Programme.

Universities either use a points tariff or the old ABC system when making their offers to students. Based on their academic grades, students are also able to work out if they are eligible. Click here to find out how the UCAS tariff system works
