University & Careers Coordinator

Choosing the right university for your child can seem daunting and overwhelming.  With the right planning and research, the process becomes more streamlined and simple. ABC is here to offer parents the advice and guidance they need at these critical times.  

The university and careers coordinator works with every student to make the transition from school to life beyond, as smooth and as possible.   They work closely with students and parents to provide advice and help via one to one interviews, talks, delivered classes in school and presentations. School, parents and students come together  to discuss goals, future plans and career choices as well as how to choose the right A Levels and how to navigate the university application process.  

Our aim is to prepare the strongest possible university applications for a wide range of universities and colleges around the world. The guidance includes advice and help on making informed choices, how to meet application deadlines, write effective personal statements, navigate on-line application forms and collect all the supporting documentation.  Work begins in Year 11 and only concludes when they arrive at the University of their choice.   

Destinations for our 2021 students included the top world of UCLA: Berkeley, Toronto, London, Brunel and Exeter to mention a few.  For the first time in school history, all Year 13 entered their first choice University and courses.  30% of all students were accepted into the Russel Group of Universities (UK), 40% of all students have been accepted into Ivy League Group of Universities (USA) with 30% of all students getting accepted into the top100 world ranking universities
