The S5/S6 University application sessions run every Thursday (for just now) and every Friday for those who attend Adv Higher class on a Thu.

We endevour to support all pupils to aim high and strive to reach university. The documents below set out the support that is in place for pupils and what they have been working through so far. It would be useful for parents/ carers to be aware of these too, particularly deadlines and guides to helping pupils make choices/ apply.

Please note- attendance at UCAS sessions is required and are registered. It is not optional. This is to ensure all pupils are able to apply at the same time and that the school can assist in the process.
