Oxbridge

Support for Oxbridge preparation is informed, personal and highly successful. In 2015, all our Oxbridge applicants achieved offers - for Vet Science, Economics, German, Human Social and Political Science and Land Economy.

Extra classes are offered to support students needing to sit entrance tests for both Oxford and Cambridge.  In addition the Head of Careers runs weekly structured sessions providing advice on answering questions at interview.  All applicants experience mock interviews with our highly experinced teachers and external providers. 

The GDST offers a weekend residential Oxbridge preparation conference for girls from across the Trust’s schools to work with experts in their chosen field of study. For many Oxbridge preparation begins early – 40 of our Y10 visited Cambridge this summer.

In addition, girls are prepared for entrance to American Universities. In 2015, our Deputy Head Girl was awarded a Scholarship to Princeton. You can read about her experience here.
