Oxbridge Success

Teacher in Charge – Mrs Amy Colqhuoun

Students begin their Oxbridge preparation in January of their L6 year. We meet weekly and engage in critical thinking, discussion of current affairs, explanation of the application process and practice interviews. Alumni come in to the College to speak about their experiences of both the application process and university life. Prior Park has link colleges in both Oxford and Cambridge and we have guest speakers from those colleges to visit as well. The Headmaster, Housemasters/ Housemistresses, Academic Head of Sixth Form and subject teachers are all involved in helping the students submit the best application possible.
