Our Track Record

Take a look at our past students

VERA

Age at start: 14

Gender: Female 

Nationality: Chinese

 

Starting Position: Vera is already a bright girl and attends a great girls school called St Swithun’s.  She is very ambitious and wanted to move to an even more competitive environment and where the schools were higher in the league table and schools which had a higher percentage of successful Oxbridge applicants.

 

We chose to apply to Westminster and Wycombe Abbey with her.

 

Aim: To successfully pass the interview at Wycombe Abbey and pass the entrance exams and to successfully past the entrance exams to Westminster so she can progress to the second stage to pass the interview and pass the Thinking Skills Assessment and therefore getting offers in both schools.

 

What we did:  We did a one-year mentoring programme with Vera and organised tutors for her and prepared her for interviews.  We monitored her grades to ensure her grades were always improving.

 

She successfully gained offers to both schools for sixth form and this year, we will be mentoring her to applying to the University of Cambridge.
