Oxbridge @ UVHS
We are fortunate to have excellent links with partner colleges in both Oxford (Queen's College) and Cambridge (Fitzwilliam College) to enhance our school based approach in promoting excellence and challenge with our more able students.
In addition to attending the annual Oxbridge National Conference, various Oxbridge led workshops delivered in school we also offer opportunities for subject specific residential summer schools and extended residential open days designed especially for our students.
Our school based Oxbridge Group enables the most able students to join a group designed to support their research and preparation in making an application to Oxford or Cambridge Universities.
The group meet fortnightly to focus on developing their understanding on how the collegiate system works, the entry requirements and application process. Our school programme includes support on the pre-tests for specific subjects, interview techniques and all students receive mock interviews by highly experienced and carefully selected professionals in the student's chosen field of study.
Take a look at our extensive Oxbridge programme to help you gain an overview on how we support our most able academics.
We aim to attend a Student Conference each year. This conference is designed to provide up-to-date information on the application and admissions procedure at both Oxford and Cambridge as well as providing an insight into student life.
