Higher Education Information Evenings

At this time of year we would ordinarily be visiting many schools to provide information to parents as well as pupils about the UCAS process. In recognition of this we have scheduled Information Evenings which will be particularly useful for parents. Our first one of these was very successful and well attended.  Please pass this information on to your students. You and your students can register for one of the dates provided here:


Thursday 8th October 6pm

As always you  contact us on and we may be able to arrange an alternative date for your school.
