Preparation for University

Preparation for University

Nearly all of the Upper Sixth at St Lawrence continue to Higher Education at University, with significant numbers aspiring to places at top universities (details of recent destinations can be found here)

We have a range of tools that we use to help our Sixth Formers find the right courses and institutions for them, whether they are expecting A*A*A* or CCC.


This is a platform that every pupil in the Lower Sixth will sign up to in their first week. It allows pupils to start exploring which courses, careers and destinations are right for them and has everything from personality quizzes to guidance on personal statements and free enrichment courses.


For anyone applying to university in the UK, UCAS is the application platform that will be used. There are lots of resources available through the UCAS Hub and they also have some useful guides for parents.


Competitive Courses Group

For pupils aspiring to the most competitive courses and institutions, we have the CCG. This is an opportunity for like-minded pupils to get together regularly to build their skills and broaden their horizons, undertaking challenges, research and presentation tasks to help them succeed in interview processes and beyond.

Competitive Course Programme 

“The school is successful in providing opportunities for pupils of all abilities to gain academic success and develop their individual talents.”
