UNI & FUTURES INFO

Oxbridge Programme

Hinchley Wood Sixth Form runs a comprehensive Oxbridge Programme for Years 12 and 13. 

Students with the relevant academic profile are invited to join at the start of Year 12.  The group meets fortnightly to:

  • Discuss ideas to develop their ability to think, problem solve and reason effectively in areas beyond the curriculum
  • Deliver Presentations on an area of their specialist subject that they have independently researched
  • Practice past entrance exam papers.
  • Receive guidance on the application and selection process, additional reading, lectures, master classes, summer schools and other activities to thoroughly prepare them for their application.

OMS (Oxford Mentoring Scheme) is an online mentoring scheme which all candidates are encouraged to apply for.  This provides regular online meetings with a current Oxford Undergraduate in the students’ specialist subject and 2 or 3 students from other schools. The Undergrad facilitates discussions, sets tasks and answers questions on the academic subject, admissions process and interviews.

Mock interviews are undertaken with all candidates often including external subject experts.

Enrichment Tutorials are offered to applicants from the group covering 8 weekly sessions delivered by two Oxford graduates on the history of thought, from The Enlightenment to Postmodernism, and include consideration of politics, art, literature, music and philosophy, culminating with an individual tutorial.

Subject Specialist Tutorials are offered by teachers at the school and replicate Oxbridge tutorials and interviews, challenging students to question and think more deeply about their chosen subject.

Visits:

  • We take students to Oxford for a day’s visit which includes two subject lectures and tour of the Colleges.
  • A representative from Oxford visits to speak to the group about admissions, interviews, the application process and life at Oxford.
  • Hinchley Wood Alumnae, studying at Oxford, return to the school to talk to the group about their experiences.

Apprenticeship Applications

Apprenticeships are an excellent alternative to University: Apprentices are paid from day one and have work experience in the career of their choice, as well as studying for a qualification up to, and including, degree level.

The process of application is quite demanding, however, if you are successful your employer will be investing a considerable amount of time and money in you whilst you are training for your qualification.

Gone are the days when apprenticeships used to only be in low level qualifications; degree apprenticeships are abundant – please use the guide and links below to explore the options.

Work Experience
