What our students say....."Being part of the High Achievers Programme at Carmel has helped me immensely. The support and advice I received from my tutors was amazing. The events that were organised to help with applications to Oxbridge were particularly beneficial. There's no doubt that being part of the programme built up my confidence, and was a great help with my application to Oxford University." (Sophie Flynn)
