At Virgo Fidelis Sixth Form we have a proven track record of helping students gain admission to the top universities.
We provide not only an excellent education, but also the skills needed to stand out from the crowd. When our students apply for university, they are able to demonstrate personal maturity and a genuine interest in their chosen subject, as well as the potential for future development.
We guide our students through every stage of their university selection and application. One-to-one UCAS advisory sessions, exceptional teaching and specialist training programmes put students in the best possible position for entry into their desired university.
We maintain close relationships with admissions tutors at many leading universities and fully understand the qualities they look for. We organise visits from different Universities.
Careers guidance throughout these two years is regarded as a priority. There is a structured programme to encourage an awareness of the variety of opportunities available, and to help students towards a well-informed career decision.
Application to Higher Education and degree courses is actively encouraged and supported. Oxbridge applications are supported through a specialist preparation schedule. There is a suite of university admission tests that we offer as an examination centre, or ensure that your daughter can access at the appropriate centre if they are not schools based tests. Such tests constitute an important part of the selection process at certain universities. These tests include The BioMedical Admissions Test (BMAT) and the UK Clinical Aptitude Test (UKCAT) for applicants to Medicine, Veterinary Medicine, Biomedical Science and Dentistry; the National Admissions Test for Law (LNAT) for applicants who seek to study Law; and a series of tests for certain subjects studied at Oxford or Cambridge University: We support students in preparing for UCAS with a programme that delivers a complete understanding of the process and we ensure that all students have produced the best possible personal statement. We also provide entry for Sixth Term Entry Papers (STEP) for Mathematics.
