Welcome to our Advanced Graduate Programme

The Advanced Graduate Programme (APG) is for our most academically gifted students, so they continue to excel throughout their post-16 studies. The programme has a stronger focus on pursuing places at Oxford, Cambridge and top Russel Group universities, studying competitive degrees, securing sought-after apprenticeships, and elite work placements.

If you're interested in careers such as Medicine, Nursing, Veterinary Science, or in the Technology and Computer Science sectors, our BioMed and STEM groups will be the perfect formula for you! Hear from Louise and Ryan about their experiences.
