The Academy is committed to supporting all students to be successful in gaining a place at university or a higher level apprenticeship. We are working with a local charity ‘intoUniversity’ which provides a corporate mentor to work with students through the application process and will continue to support them for their first year at University.

Many of our students are assigned a mentor to help ensure they have a successful application to the most competitive universities. This may be through IntoUniversity or The Access Project.

All of our students visit a University outside of London and we host 20 institutions in our University Fair every June.  Students also attend summer schools and open days throughout the year.
