What our students say....."I was initially reluctant to apply for Oxbridge, but through the High Achievers’ programme and tutor support, I gained the confidence to do so. I was guided through all aspects of the process, from writing an effective personal statement and completing additional application forms to participating in mock interviews. I believe that all of this support has had a massive impact on me achieving a conditional offer to read English at Magdalene College Cambridge." (Jessica Taylor)
