Evidence shows the great importance that employers place on ‘character, attitude and behaviour’ in assessing the future potential of candidates. Similarly, university admissions tutors are looking not for what a student has already achieved, but what they are capable of achieving in the future.
This is particularly true of the elite universities like Oxbridge which receive only A*/A applicants, and so look for additional qualities in selecting the strongest candidates with the greatest potential.
Students are guided to take responsibility for their own performance and wellbeing through participation in enrichment and extra-curricular programmes that develop them as a person. Learning to be confident, resilient, pro-active and focussed is key to performing at our best. All students take part in an off-site residential course at the beginning of the academic year to introduce them to team-building and leadership skills and are encouraged to take part in the following activities throughout their stay with us.
