Star Academies prides itself on the quality of support given to pupils as they prepare for university. University guidance will be given on both a group and individual basis. This will ensure that each pupil’s individual aspirations are catered for and that they are well prepared for their life after sixth form.

The majority of sixth form students in other Star schools go on to Higher Education, including study at Russell Group Universities. They study a range of disciplines as diverse as Medicine, Law, Accountancy, Engineering, Art or English. This is our ambition for Eden Manchester’s sixth form pupils, too.

Pupils will be given 1-to-1 help with their personal statement, which accompanies their university application. UCAS references will be compiled in detail by experienced staff. Each reference will be reviewed fully by the Head of Sixth Form before submission.

Interview preparation, including mock interviews, will be given to all pupils as part of the Tutorial programme. Visits to universities will also be organised on a regular basis to give pupils a taste of university life.
