Aspire Programme

For those students with ambitions to study at the most competitive universities, we offer many opportunities to help you reach your full potential.  We provide dedicated information and resources which encourage you to take action, break barriers and achieve your goals!

All students with a strong GCSE profile will become a member of the ‘Aspire’ programme when they enrol at the College.  Students will be contacted on a regular basis with information about opportunities they can take part in - these range from practical interview tasks to webinars.  These activities will cover the entire academic spectrum and students will be encouraged to embrace them in order to develop their wider skills and mental agility. The range of activities and support available to you include:

  • Expert Tutor support throughout the UCAS process
  • Preparation for applications and admissions tests
  • Staff who specialise in specific subject applications
  • Personal statement workshops and feedback
  • ‘Introduction to Oxbridge’ talk from Admissions Tutors
  • Interview guidance sessions and mock interviews
  • Open Days, Oxbridge Conference and HE Exhibition visits

Our success speaks for itself: nearly a quarter of our students who applied to Oxford or Cambridge universities in 2020 were made offers.  If you aspire to attend the world’s very best universities, you can do no better than to study at The Sixth Form College Farnborough.
