One of Ashbourne’s primary aims is to equip students with the best possible grades and UCAS application in order to help them achieve entrance to their desired university. Ashbourne offers intimate, exam-focused classes, in which students of all levels can flourish academically and pursue a university that suits them. Aside from the excellent quality of teaching that Ashbourne offers, each student will also be assigned a personal tutor to guide them through each stage of their university application. Their personal tutor will monitor the quality of their academic work throughout the year and will meet with them for two hours each week. Ashbourne’s commitment to securing university places for students extends to the clearing process after A Level results have been published in the summer.
Ashbourne encourages students wishing to apply for highly competitive places at Oxbridge and Medical School. The college frequently conducts trips to Oxford University as well as other universities and colleges in the UK. Students in the past have found that the detail and quality of Ashbourne’s assistance in university entrance is almost unmatched by any other school or sixth form college.
