High Performance Programme

This is a programme for our top academic students who have achieved at least 6 A/A*with an average point score of 50+. Students will need to be fully committed academically and have a strong desire to achieve the highest possible grades.

6 A/A* grades need to have been achieved in the facilitating subjects of English Language and Literature, Mathematics, Science, History, Geography and Language. (Religious Studies, Sociology and Music also acceptable) For those who have been unable to take a modern foreign language there will be lessons available in Spanish, Greek, Latin, French and Italian.

Those accepted onto the HP programme would be taught lessons in specialist groups in the following subjects: - English, Mathematics, Geography, Biology, Chemistry, Physics, History, Religious Studies, Psychology and Further Maths. Students may also wish to choose other subjects alongside any Elite courses as described above.

There will also be a specialist mentoring programme over  year 12 and year 13 delivered by experienced mentors that will focus on developing the skills needed for applications to the Oxbridge/Russell Group universities. It is expected that the majority of our HP students will be wishing to apply to these universities.

There will also be support given from our Alumni group who have been successful Oxbridge/Russell Group students.
