‘Getting into top universities’

On Friday the 3rd of March, ten of our year 11 students attended a conference hosted by the PiXL group at Sandy park, Exeter. The focus of this event was ‘Getting into top universities’ and was presented by Peter Rawlings.

The talks included myth-busting facts about access to prestigious universities as well as practical advice on facilitating subjects, skill portfolios and the application process. During the second half of the morning, there was a question and answer session where students had the opportunity to request further information and guidance to specific queries. St Cuthbert Mayne students were the first to raise their hands and lead the discussion on key topics, including funding, entry requirements and the current grade change implications.

All students who attended the event received an individual conference booklet and an additional reference copy is also available in the careers office. Many thanks to our impeccably behaved Year 11 students and Mr Chadwick for driving! Miss Tombs
